KATHMANDU, Nov 29: The Odd-Even system introduced by the Metropolitan Traffic Police Office to ease vehicular movement of Very Very Important Persons (VVIPs) during the Asia Pacific Summit 2018 has caused an ache to commuters.
The Odd-Even system is in place from today until December 3.
According to the odd-even rule, vehicles with odd and even number plates will be allowed to run in the streets every alternate days.
“According to the rule, odd-numbered vehicles can be used on the Valley roads on November 29, December 1 and December 3 while the even numbered vehicles will be allowed to run on November 30 and December 2,” Inspector Jitesh Dahal of MTPO said.
VVIPs including the head of states and governments of seven nations and delegates from the government of 45 nations will start arriving in Nepal from November 29 to attend the summit. The odd-even rule was in place also during the BIMSTEC Summit held recently in the capital.
The rule does not affect the movement of emergency vehicles like ambulance, water supply tankers, oil tankers, milk supply vehicles, and vehicles belonging to the media.
