Parking fee in Bogor

From Media Indonesia

As a motorist I park my car in Sartika Plaza, on Jalan Otto Iskandardinata, regularly with a Rp 300 parking fee which I pay when I leave. But lately the parking attendants have demanded Rp 500 irrespective of the length of parking time.

When I questioned the increase of fees, the parking attendants said that the area has recently been turned into an official parking lot.

But when I checked with the Bogor officials I found out that the fee should be Rp 300 for the first two hours. The Rp 500 fee is applicable only for parking buildings.

Hence there has been a violation of the regulation and I bet that the overcharge has never reached the Bogor administration.

I would like to draw the attention of the Bogor administration to pay heed to this matter and ensure that its regulations work.
