No alcohol should be sold in warung DENPASAR, BALI - Under recently passed national regulations, the sale of “Class-A” alcoholic beverages with an alcohol content of between 0-5% can now only take place at minimarkets, hypermarkets and supermarkets and the sale of low-alcohol beverages, such as beer, is no longer allowed at warung kaki lima, small grocers and small food stands.

The director general of Standardization and Consumer Protection of the Ministry of Trade, Widodo, promised stricter enforcement at a meeting in Jakarta on April 25, 2014. The Ministry of Trade has issued new regulations governing the stocking, distribution and sale of alcohol (Permendag No. 20/M-DAG/PER/4/2014).

In cooperation with the police, businesses found violating the rules by trading in these alcoholic beverages are subject to having such items seized. Widodo said regular patrols would be organized to identify those violating the law or retail outlets selling beverages other than beer with alcohol contents in excess of 5%.

The government is also promising to take steps to control the distribution of alcohol to ensure that under-aged drinkers are not being sold alcohol.

Again a nice example of creating a problem which is in fact not a problem at all

In Jakarta for instance (unlike in Bali and Yogya), you won't find kaki lima's selling beer. However, the traffic and driving style is much more 'out of control' compared to the two other locations. Look at any given crossing and traffic light. Also, there is no discipline and practically no enforcement of wearing helmets and it's quite normal to see 12 to 16 year olds (obviously without a driver license) on a 125 cc motorcycle.

The chances to get caught in an accident are therefore much higher. One consolation; the adversary probably won't be drunk. Just plain stupid.

They'd better do something about that. Or isn't the issue safety related at all? And perhaps religiously inspired?
