The Depok administration in West Java plans to implement the odd-even license plate traffic policy to alleviate traffic congestion.

Depok Transportation Agency head Dadang Wihana said one of the streets that might be affected by the policy was Jl. Margonda.

He added that according to surveys conducted by the agency, traffic jams on Jl. Margonda always happened over weekends, especially the first and fourth week of the month.

"The street is crowded in the first and fourth week of the month because residents receive their salaries then. They usually go to commercial and culinary centers during that time," Dadang said on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.

He added that the agency was still reviewing the policy as well as conducting focus group discussions to see whether the policy could be implemented.

Currently, the odd-even traffic policy is in effect on some major roads in Jakarta to reduce traffic jams ahead of the Asian Games. (cal)
