Jakarta has various issues to be resolved. As Indonesian biggest city, one of the
problems that still become a nightmare nowadays is transportation.
The population of vehicles in Jakarta increases very rapidly due to the high growth of economy in the last decades.
Additionally, the motorization phenomenon in Jakarta has generated traffic safety issue, especially for pedestrians.
The rates of injury and fatality toward pedestrian in Jakarta become one of the highest and remain at the high level across the country.
Further, it is indicated that the governments have only been focusing on the development of road infrastructures toward vehicles rather than the walkable environments for pedestrians.
Motivated to help solve the complexity of transportation in Indonesia, Ridlo Haryono, a graduate from Applied Project Management Program, The University of Adelaide, completed a research on pedestrian safety in Jakarta.
Through qualitative methodology and complex system of thinking, Soft System Methodology was employed by Ridlo to analyse the complexity of transportation system in the capital city of Indonesia.
Ridlo suggested that there should be continuous effort to improve public understanding pertaining the rights and the minimum standard of facilities for pedestrian through socialization and education of the Act No. 22 Year 2009 regarding the Traffic and Land Transportation.
Further, he also mentioned that there should be more attention on pedestrian facilities especially in regards of public policy from government and investment from private sector.
