Guangzhou revs up vehicle ban to curb pollution, paper says

An odd-even ban on car use will be implemented on heavily polluted days in Guangzhou, Shanghai Daily reported Wednesday, citing the municipal government. When the air quality index exceeds a set limit, a red alert will be issued and cars, including those from outside Guangzhou, will be banned from the road depending on whether their number plates end in odd or even numbers, the report said. Police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, emergency repair vehicles, school buses, buses and taxis are not subject to the bans, it said.
