n.— «Jakarta has introduced a number of traffic policies in an effort to regulate the number of private cars operating in the capital. One such policy was the much criticized “three-in one” system, which requires the drivers of private cars to have two passengers at peaks hours in certain areas. The system broke down with the emergence of a new breed of street worker—dubbed jockeys—who are paid to be passengers in three-in-one areas.» —“Jakartans pitched new traffic policy” Jakarta Post (Indonesia) Jan. 19, 2006.
