On the first day of the sanction, most violators are from outside Jakarta. They are netted on Jalan MT Haryono, Jalan DI Panjaitan, Jalan Ahmad Yani and Jalan P ramuka.

To conduct ticketing, his side had alerted 10 officers supported by East Jakarta Transportation Sub-agency members at each point.
"Today we have ticketed 24 drivers," he expressed, Monday (8/10).

"Our duty is monitoring, and the ticketing lies in the police," he stated.
