Conspiracy Theory Update

If you happen to drive around Bandung, and your car starts to wiggle around like it was powered by an Ab-Hoolahooperizer2000, don't be alarmed!

You'll probably notice that the roads have developed more holes than swiss cheese. And you're bugged by this feeling that the number of holes are growing. Guess what? You're right!

Ever since the local government started the new bypass project, these holes mysteriously appeared. And as the bypass construction advances, the current roads keep getting less. It's as if --analogically speaking--somebody just move the roads to somewhere else.

Wouldn't it be convenient for the government that if this keeps on, by the time the bypass is finished, there will be no roads left? What can we, drivers, use then?

Why, you silly. The bypass, of course. With a fee. Which goes to the government's pocket.

Coincidence, or great marketing strategy? You decide.
