Quoting the page detik.com, implementation of electronic ticketing in Bali today, Monday (28/11/2022). Following that, the owners rental Vehicles on the Island of the Gods are advised to check the Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) electronic ticket application diligently.
Possible Misconduct During Rental
Following the implementation of electronic ticketing in Bali, violations on the highway do not immediately receive a ticket on the spot. So, what if the rental vehicle commits a violation while still in the hands of the tenant? Responding to this confusion, the Head of the Bali Police's Head of Sub-Directorate for Gakkum Ditlantas, Kompol Rahmawaty Ismail, gave an explanation. He asked rental vehicle owners in Bali to monitor their vehicles in the Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) application. This monitoring is necessary, considering that rental vehicles are the responsibility of the vehicle owner.
“It has been prepared on the national ETLE app PlayStore, please download it there. There, check with the DK of our vehicle, whether during the time of the rental he had an ELTE violation or not," he said at the Bali Police Headquarters, Tuesday (22/11/2022).
Let's Not Overdrawn, Ask the Tenant to Pay
Bearing this in mind, if a rental vehicle is subject to an electronic fine in Bali, then you can ask the lessee to be responsible when returning the vehicle. Submission of this appeal, of course, so that the rental owner does not lose. “He (the rental company) can check, if he checks that there has been an ETLE action there, when the car or vehicle is turned over, he automatically has to immediately convey it to the person who borrowed the vehicle to complete it. So he (the owner) did not pay the bill," he added.
Lazy Checks, Fines Pay Yourself
Conversely, if the tenant has gone to his country or city of origin and the vehicle is subject to an electronic ticket in Bali, the vehicle owner must be responsible. "So what is recorded in us is the vehicle owner's data. That's why there is responsibility there, if he (the owner) is negligent there, he is not aware of his vehicle, so he will pay for the ticket," he explained again.
oh no Pay, Vehicles So Stupid
Meanwhile, the Head of Public Relations (Kabid Humas) of the Bali Police, Kombes Stefanus Satake Bayu Setianto, said that a vehicle would be blocked if the vehicle owner reluctant pay a fine. In other words, the vehicle will be 'bodong' status. "(Data violations) will surely be sent to the violators. But if you don't pay, the vehicle will be blocked. The STNK is temporarily blocked as long as you don't make payments," he said.
If a vehicle wants to pay taxes, Kompol Rahma added that it needs to unblock it first. The trick is to pay an electronic ticket fine in Bali that is in arrears earlier. "When paying the vehicle tax or samsat, he must first unblock the ticket, pay the fine first, then he can continue," he added. (y)
