No more traffic!

In 2014 there will be so many vehicles in Jakarta that any automotive transportation becomes unfeasible. Currently the average speed of 2.5 million private cars and 3.8 million motorcycles is 14.75 km/hour. And every day 300 new cars and 1200 new motorcycles enter the 7500 kilometers of roads. On average 50% of the travel time is wasted at intersections, there are 49 spots of such chronic congestion. If we look at it from the bright side then we just have to go on like this and the solution will be in sight: no more traffic possible in 2014!
