The ownership and the use of motorcycle were increasing along with the worsening congestion in Indonesian cities. Indiscipline motorcycle riders will fill any space between vehicles whilet waiting the sign to turn green in a signalized intersection. Some motorcycle riders even wait in front of stopping line. This will endanger safety and interupt smooth discharging vehicles passing signalized intersection stopping line. Following the success story of other countries to solve this problem by introducing special stopping space right before the stopping line of an signalized intersection, Indonesian cities tried to implement this measure. The design guidelines were drafted by the Ministry of Public Work. It has no legal basis yet, but several cities have implemented this measure. Interestingly, Jakarta has not yet implemented the measure, but Greater Jakarta (Bodetabek/ Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi) have implemented such measure in several spots. Since, this is a new measure, it was expected that the rate of understanding of the function of the special stopping space (as well as the rate of its use) were low. Observations were conducted in a signalized intersection in Bekasi to comprehent the rate of its use by motorcycles and their ilegal use by other vehicles (light and heavy vehicles). The field observation was carried out in hourly morning, noon and afternoon periods in two of the intersection approaches. Traffic flow of the observed intersection approaches was counted and capacity was predicted so that V/C can be calculated. Analysis of Pearson correlations between V/C and special stopping space use rates were then calculated. About 100 respondents were also asked to fill questionnaires regarding their understanding and the use of special stopping space.
