Experiments in traffic planning in Jakarta, Indonesia

Commuters received an unpleasant surprise last week when Jakarta’s popular governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, temporarily suspended the capital’s three-in-one system, which prohibits private vehicles with fewer than three passengers from taking major roads around the city center during the morning and evening rush hours.

As expected, the lines of vehicles, which extend to the horizon, moved even more sluggishly than usual, and the Indonesian news media called the experiment Carmageddon.
