LIPPO CIKARANG - The Department of Communication has launched a website where you can peek along with 21 camera's. These camera's are placed in strategic positions along highways and main roads of western Java to keep an eye at the traffic in the coming two weeks. An estimated 16 million people will hit the roads to find their way home to celebrate the end of the Ramadan.
This period, which is known in Indonesia as Idul Fitri, causes the biggest mass movement of people as they will first go to the villages and cities where they were born to celebrate Idul Fitri. Soon after these holidays, they will all go back to the cities where they live during the year to earn a living.
It is the first time that the Department of Communication is releasing images of 21 camera's along main routs. Some of them are focused on exits of toll roads for example. The images of the camera's can be seen by the public now. It looks like it is a popular way of spending time, because the renewing the images from the camera's often is interrupted by an error on the website. You can then simply reload the website (multiple times) to get an image again.
