New parking rules in Ubud

Police and traffic officials in Ubud begin the introduction of new traffic rules aimed to ease traffic congestion at the popular Bali tourist destination. In order to socialize the new rules, traffic officials enacted no-parking rules in the area surrounding the Catus Pata Ubud roundabout. The head of the Transportation and Information Service said the timing of a mass cremation was chosen to introduce the new no parking rules. Working together with the Gianyar Police the public were told that parking is no longer allowed on three roads: Along Jalan Raya Suweta from Puri Ubud to the north. People wishing to park in these regions are now directed to the central parking facility at Pura Batu Karu. From Catus Pata to the east until the Ubud Camat Office. From Catus Pata to the south until the Ubud field. Some 70 personnel from the Transportation Service, working with the police,  began to enforce the no-parking rule on the three roads. The parking prohibition applies for all kinds of vehicles, including motorcycles. Commencing in August 2016, the enforcement of the new Traffic Law No. 22 will come into full effect, with cars parked illegally subject to towing and ticketing.
