This pathway is not pernar deserted by vehicles, especially by large trucks carrying goods from Java and vice versa. Denpasar-Gilimanuk highway also be lanes for trucks from Lombok Island is heading to Java, and vice versa. Not only a large truck very much, too large buses that pass from morning to night.
During this time, Bali does not have an alternative way to connect the west, north, and the southern region. In case of accidents which have an impact on traffic congestion, the traffic flow will be paralyzed. The vehicle is not moving at all. In fact, often have to stay overnight journey.
