Tehran Municipality is to roll out a new traffic scheme dubbed Air Pollution Control (APC) in two months.
The plan will replace the odd-even rule which was introduced in 2005 and has seemingly lost its usefulness. APC will come into effect on June 22,.
As per the odd-even rule, cars now enter a designated ‘restricted zone’ on alternate days depending on the odd and even number of the license plate.
This zone is an 88.5 square kilometer area in central Tehran limited by Imam Ali Expressway in the east, Navvab Expressway and Chamran Highway to the west, Besat Expressway in the south and Hemmat Expressway in the north. Saturday is earmarked for cars with the last even digit and Friday, being the weekend, is free for all cars.
