The odd-even license plate policy will not be enforced over the Christmas holidays from Monday, Dec. 24, to Tuesday, Dec. 25, the Jakarta Police tweeted on Christmas Eve morning.

Jakarta Police's traffic unit posted to its Twitter account (@TMCPoldaMetroJaya) on Monday morning that “the odd-even regulation will not be enforced today, Monday, Dec. 24”.

The exception has been made in accordance with Article 3(3) Gubernatorial Regulation No. 106/2018 on the odd-even traffic policy, said Jakarta Transportation Agency acting head Sigit Widjatmiko.

“The traffic restriction [odd-even policy] is not enforced on Saturdays, Sundays or national holidays as set by Presidential Decree,” Sigit said on Monday, as quoted by kompas.com.

Presidential Decree No. 13/2019 designates Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as national holidays. 

The odd-even traffic policy is to resume on Dec. 26.

The odd-even traffic policy allows cars with odd-numbered license plates passage on odd-numbered dates along certain during the morning and afternoon rush hours, and the same for cars with even-numbered license plates on even-numbered dates.

The policy regulates access to Jl. Medan Merdeka Barat, Jl. M.H. Thamrin, Jl. Jend. Sudirman, some sections of Jl. Jend. S. Parman, Jl. Gatot Subroto, Jl. H.R. Rasuna Said, Jl. Jend. MT Haryono, Jl. Jend. DI Panjaitan and Jl. Jend. Ahmad Yani. (ami)
