TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The National Police’s 2022 Ketupat Operation Team—a special security operation during Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr—reported 51 accidents took place on April 23-May 2 on toll roads during this year’s Eid homecoming or mudik period.
“While non-turnpike accidents were recorded at 2,894 cases,” said National Police Public Relations Division Chief Insp. Gen. Dedi Prasetyo in a release quoted on Wednesday, May 4, 2022.
The number of accidents in total reached 2,945 cases, declining by one percent from the previous year when the government barred people from mudik.
“Death toll and the number victims sustaining light injuries tumbled, but those with severe injuries rose,” Dedi added.
Dedi also called on people to avert the peak of Eid return traffic that was projected to occur on May 6-8. “And for those who have enough holiday leaves can return after May 9,” he said.
He explained the National Police have prepared traffic engineering to anticipate the impending return traffic through the one-way and contraflow policy, which will be set in motion in multiple schemes.
On Friday, May 6, 2022, the-one way traffic will begin at 02:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m. Eastern Indonesia Time from KM 414 Kalikangkung Toll Gate to KM 47 of Cikampek Toll Gate, followed by the contraflow to KM 28.500.
