Jakarta to implement 'odd-even' plate system to battle traffic

- +

Jakarta will enforce an odd-even vehicle plate system in an attempt to reduce the Indonesian capital’s notorious traffic by up to 40%. 

The Jakarta Police Traffic Division and Jakarta Transportation Agency will allocate days that vehicles are permitted to drive on the city’s roads based on the last digit of the registration plate, with plans to test the system as early as January next year.
