The odd-even license plate traffic policy, which has been enforced on major thoroughfares since prior to the 2018 Asian Games, has been deemed successful in easing Jakarta’s nightmarish traffic.
The Jakarta Transportation Agency recorded that vehicle speeds under the odd-even policy increased by 44 percent and CO2 emissions in the city’s air decreased by 20.3 percent.
