"Up to now, I have not received the report that our resident was turned back," he said in Banjarmasin, Wednesday.
Even, he said, there were no efforts found by local travelers to fool officers in the field to be able to escape for a homebound trip (mudik).
"As reported for example in Sumatra or Java, people entered the truck, but as if the truck had no passengers," he told.
"Or other tricks on the bus by hiding in goods container. We are grateful it had not occurred in our area," he said.
Indeed, Andi Azis acknowledged, there was a report from a chief of traffic unit that several cars carrying homebound travelers were turned back, but those were from outside to enter South Kalimantan. "No more than five vehicles, not significant," he said.
He hoped the public obedience for the time being not to make a homebound trip to be maintained until the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus ended or under control.
"The government policy to ban mudik is not for the government, but for the community and ourselves so as not to spread the COVID-19 virus to people we loved in our hometown," he pointed out.
Andi Azis stated, since the beginning of Ramadhan his party has intensified traffic safeguards, especially in Banjarmasin which implement Large Scale Social Restriction (PSBB) to break the transmission of COVID-19.
"There are 3000 officers who always keep the flow of traffic in the province and all drivers obey the rules," he said.
