Bajaj Driver Sleeping On His Vehicle

The driver was taking a nap on his Bajaj parked by the wayside

When I was walking in the residential area of Jakarta, there were a few Bajaj, three-wheeled taxis, parked on the side of the road. I thought they were waiting for customers, but it seemed to be different. This place was a residential area with not much traffic. These Bajajs were not waiting for customers but parked on the side of the road where drivers were taking a break. Just like in Japan, taxi drivers parked their vehicles on the side of the road where there was little traffic to rest.

I looked inside one Bajaj and found the driver lying on his side in the narrow driver's seat. He was sleeping with his head cramped on the window frame. I'd often seen a becak driver sleeping on his vehicle, but I hadn't seen a Bajaj driver sleeping in his car very often. I guessed that's why this place was a good place to rest without much traffic.

I could see another Bajaj parked behind the window where the driver was sleeping, but there was no one in the driver's seat. He must be loafing around somewhere else. And I could see people walking leisurely on the road. It was an idyllic afternoon.
