Marcal Mascarenhas and I Gusti Agung Mas Rwa JayantiariAbstract:
This article has the purpose of providing an analysis of the arrangements related to the use of electric vehicles in Indonesia and to understand the requirements that must be met for parties who drive electric vehicles so that they have legality when driving electric vehicles. The method used in this study uses a legal study with a normative juridical type, with a statutory approach in order to discuss legal issues in this journal. This study found that arrangements related to electric vehicles in Indonesia have actually been regulated since 2019 through a Presidential Regulation. However, in the absence of specific arrangements related to the limitative understanding of these electric bicycles and motorbikes, clarity regarding whether their status can be aligned with conventional motorbikes (using electricity) causes people to freely use them on the highway, including being used by children. Related to the legalization of the use of electric bicycles or motorcycles on the highway, the party using the electric motor should have a type C driving license. However, there is no limitative definition of electric vehicles, especially electric bicycles and motorcycles, and no socialization that the status of electric vehicles is the same as conventional vehicles. So ordinary people certainly will not know that there are requirements that must be met. Especially in the rules described above that children aged 12 and 15 are allowed to use electric vehicles under parental supervision. Meanwhile, the age requirement in making a type C driver's license is 17 years. This of course creates new problems, namely norm conflicts.Pages: 15-18 | Views: 76 | Downloads: 30Download Full Article: Click Here
