I’ve been living in Jogja since I was born ’till now I’m 21 years old. I really feel the differences between my childhood environment and now. The annoying things are the TRAFFIC and the driver.
Jogja has so many universities that makes so many people from other provinces or other lands come and study here. It’s not I don’t like the people come here and study here, but I just don’t like their behaviour on the road. Original people from Jogja love to go outside by motorcycle, so you can meet so many motorcycles here. Just so you know, Yogyakarta isn’t big city and DIY isn’t large province. You can go from north to southside within 3 hours, so you don’t need to drive by car. And Yogyakarta city, you can go from a city limit to other city limits within an hour. The people from other provinces came here, they bought motorcycle or car here to drive with. They keep driving with the usual habit from their origin. We, Jogja’s people, don’t like to sound the horn if the other driver doesn’t make a bad attitude on the road. But the newcomers like to sound the horn when the timer of red signal from traffic light almost 0, it means that the timer showing number 1 or 2, that’s so noisy and unmannered. The other thing is the driver who doesn’t like to give way to other driver to cross the road. I’m so sick of this.
And the most annoying thing is the people who drive a car ALONE. When I asked them, they said it’s because Jogja’s so hot. But, they never think that the high temperature’s because of their cars.
This is a picture that proven Jogja’s traffic now
