ABS Could Reduce Traffic Accidents, Study Says

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta -  A joint study by Bosch and the University of Indonesia (UI) has revealed motorcycle accidents can potentially be reduced 27 percent if every motorcycle is equipped with the anti-lock braking system (ABS). 

According to Iwaki Atsushi, the director of original equipment division of Bosch in Indonesia, the police’s data in 2017 suggested 72 percent of traffic accidents in the country involved two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles.

“We believe that the implementation of this technology can yield positive impact on Indonesia,” said Iwaki during the Indonesia Motorcycle Show (IMOS) on Friday, November 2.

The ABS mandatory policy, Iwaki continued, had been mandatory on motorcycles above 125cc in European Union countries. Meanwhile, similar regulations have been adopted by India and Japan in October this year, while Australia and Taiwan are set to follow suit starting 2019.

An official at the Transportation Ministry said that despite the lack of such a regulation in Indonesia, the government is mulling over implementing a mandatory ABS regulation in the future.
