Earlier, a viral spread on social networks of thousands of motorcycle travelers crossed the barricades on the Kedungwaringin Pantura line, at the border of the Bekasi-Karawang regency, on Sunday evening.

A number of motorcyclists even dared to go against the tide to cross the blockades guarded by joint officers of the police, TNI, Satpol PP and the Transport Office.

Travelers were asked to turn around, but they refused. As a result, there was a total traffic jam of 5 kilometers.

Fearing that the situation would worsen and something untoward had happened, the officers finally opened the barricade.
