Within his first couple weeks on the job, Bali’s new police chief is taking action to show tackling the island’s traffic problem is top priority.

Even if you’re already familiar with Kuta’s streets, you’re going to have to pay close attention in the coming days, as test changes to one-way streets will be put in place to hopefully achieve Bali Police Chief Insp. Gen. Petrus R Golose’s goal of getting traffic moving.

It’s likely going to be pretty confusing at first and we’re sure not everyone will want to comply right off, but hopefully police will follow through with their vision and we’ll experience less traffic jamming when it's all said and done.

Kuta Traffic Police will be doing a pilot run to make a handful of two-way streets into one-ways, including Jl. Dewi Sartika, Jl. Raya Kuta, Jl. Patih Jelantik, and Jl. Majapahit, under direction of the chief of Bali Police’s Traffic Unit, Commissioner Anak Agung Made Sudana.

“Traffic for Jl. Dewi Sartika will flow in one direction, from south to north. Then traffic on Jl. Raya Kuta starting from the intersection with Jl. Patih Jelantik, will flow one-way from north to south,” Bali Police Traffic Unit Assistant Commissioner Bonaparte Silalahi said on Monday, as quoted by Tribun Bali.
