The Supreme Court has just passed a verdict ruling that vehicle parking companies should be fully responsible for any cars and or motorcycles that is stolen in the building or compound of parking that it managed.
This decision is very fair, because until now such parking companies charged cars/motorcycles with hourly parking rate only for the rental of parking space, but refuse to take responsibility for partial or total loss of car/motorcycle.
However, the Association of Shopping Center is not happy with this verdict, saying that the parking companies only provide parking spaces and do its best to prevent any stolen vehicles but cannot be asked to be responsible for them.
In connection with this verdict, the government of Jakarta plan to amend its by-law regarding Parking, among others by requiring parking companies to get insurance protection for all the vichicles parking in their area.
