There are many markets or business opportunities that are still unseen or hidden from most people’s eyes.
Indonesian people, however, are very keen on seeing them.
Like an artisan coffee seller with bicycle, not long after that, there comes an herbal drink seller with bicycle.
Or the growing-to-be-famous online shop with unique stuffs.
But, there are some people who create the opportunity in the wrong way, like these people mentioned in this post.
Flat tire issues do not always happen, so these people are actually experiencing a great deficit.
So, what do they do? They scatter nails on the road or the street not far from their patch-up places.
Try to drive in a 30 km/hours, and pay careful attention to the street.
If your vehicle got the nail, don’t panic and try to pull over after you are sure it’s safe, and take the nail. If you insist on driving, the tire can tear and become worse.
When you get your tire patched up, watch carefully because often they will sabotage your tire and make it worse. Thus, you have to pay more to change to a new tire with the price ranging from IDR 30.000 to IDR 45.000 ( $US 3 to 4,5).
The officers from a community once collected 300 kg worth of nails just in the area of Central Jakarta.
Some streets that are usually scattered in nail are the Daan Mogot, Hasyim Ashari, Medan Merdeka Utara, Senen market area, Pulogadung area, and Cawang area.
(See this video below about the nails scattered on the street to Soekarno Hatta airport)
Sure, it is great to be able to create the business opportunity which means more income or benefits. But doing it with this kind of act is really unacceptable, isn’t it?
