Even-numbered cars roll on day 2: Delhi deputy CM cycles to office

New Delhi: Jan 2;  Even-numbered cars rolled out on Delhi streets and the odd-numbered ones stayed largely off the roads on the second day on Saturday of the odd-even vehicular restriction trial in Delhi which saw Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia cycle to office.

Although the impact of the reduced traffic flow was not immediately reflected in the levels of suspended particulate matter, any change, if at all, would only be clear by 8 PM, when the restrictions are lifted, experts said.

Across the city, including at major arteries in central Delhi, traffic police were seen stopping violators. Yesterday, 200 errant motorists were challaned by traffic and the city's transport department for violating the formula.

The unprecedented restrictive measures, aimed at curbing pollution, was rolled out in the city yesterday and led to a major cut in the number of cars on city roads.

An "overwhelmed" Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that the radical initiative of the AAP government has received widespread acceptance among the people and that Delhi would "show the way" to the rest of the country. The pilot plan will stay in force till January 15.
