The fashion show presented by the young people received a response from JDDC Road Safety Practitioner (Jakarta Defensive Driving Consulting), Jusri Pulubuhu. According to Jusri, in the context of road safety, an event that invites a crowd clearly has an impact on other road users.
“It has an impact not only on motorcyclists, but also on car users, even other pedestrians who have no interest in Sitayam Fashion Week,” Jussari told Detikoto, Sunday (24/7/ 2022) said.
“Overall, this kind of phenomenon has actually existed for decades in some cities in the world where public roads are blocked (for fashion shows), for example in Harajuku, Japan. Roads are blocked for a few days, sure. time, it often is,” continued Jussari.
According to Jussery, Sitayam Fashion Week activity is a different entertainment for motorists passing through the area. But for the drivers who are on the run, the incident is clearly disturbing and hinders their journey.
“Event with crowds of people in Dukuh Atas, as Sitayam Fashion Week will obviously make it uncomfortable for road users who often pass there every day. Due to the traffic congestion, the routes they always pass are obstructed If they don’t want to be upset, they have to go a long way, of course the results will be smooth but it will take time,” Jussary said.
“In terms of comfort, the impact on safety is yes (it’s troubling), but if it (to make) a fatal accident, it’s not, because condensation is obstructed, traffic is jammed from afar, blocked immediately. So that the movement of one vehicle to another gets jammed. The point is only the comfort factor,” he said again.
