Green Certificate: Preventing Suicide of the Common ?

Do you know that starting next year we, cars owners in Jakarta, have to get a green certificate first in order to extend our STNK ???!!!

Like most of you, I just knew that too. Thanks to our dear fellows in ALSA (Asian Law Students Associates) Local Committee University of Indonesia who iscurrently running their second ALSA CARE (For the committee , Caca and friends: Great Idea!! Great Act!! Congrats !!!!) . As part of the whole event, a free emission test is held today in front of the UI Mosque.

If your car pass the test, which means that your car extracts emission level under the emission quota level, you will get the green certificate: SURAT KETERANGAN SEMENTARA MEMENUHI BAKU MUTU EMISI. This certificate is valued for 6 months, so that we have to test our car regularly each semester.

From the brochures the committee had distributed too, i think you should know this shocking fact abour air quality in Jakarta.
According to data collected by BPLHD (Badan Pengelolaan Lingkungan Hidup Daerah) DKI Jakarta, in the year 2000 good air category reached 32 % of the year (117 days in a year) but it decreased to only 6,85 % in the year 2003 (25 days in a year !!!).

Doesn’t it mean that we are technically poisoning ourselves ???!!!
