and other towns in Indonesia are packed with cars and people meaning that getting parking near where you are going can be an impossibility.
In the main cities you’ll find metered bays along the sides of main roads close to the centre of the cities and many parking garages which are usually underground because of the requirement to maximise space. These are usually attended and much safer than on street parking.
If you park illegally or inconsiderately, you will be issued with a ticket by the local police and have to pay it in the same manner you would a standard minor motoring offence.
Indonesia’s stance on disabled people is slowly changing and you may be surprised to see special bays for disabled drivers. They are not commonplace but if you can’t find one, head for the nearest attended parking garage and ask for a more convenient space.
