Bali’s Super Cars May Soon Be Off-Road Vehicles
Governor I Made Mangku Pastika wants unregistered Ferrari sports cars and illegal big motorbikes evicted from Bali — along with their owners if they won’t pay tax like everyone else.
“The owners are clearly not responsible people, because they do not pay taxes. They are bold enough to buy expensive cars but not to brave enough to pay taxes. They have not purchased legal vehicles,” Pastika said.
He said people who owned illegally imported Ferraris, other luxury cars and large motor cycles must be brought into line on import duties and road taxes.
“If they continue to disobey the law by operating illegal vehicles in Bali, it would be better to throw them off the island,” he said.
He has won support for action from the chairman of Commission I of the provincial House of Representatives, I Made Arjaya. He says the legislature must help put an end to the illegal use of luxury vehicles.
Rather than paying off certain officials in order to be allowed to operate their vehicles, it would be better if these rich people just paid their taxes,” Arjaya said.
