      Here was some stats around the world which follows these rule ( odd even ) , btw not just these many other cities follow that too .


      Beijing

      Ahead of 2008 Olympics, Beijing imposed restrictions on private vehicles by allowing even and odd license plates to drive on alternate days. A Chinese government study placed the vehicle emission reduction at 40% post the policy implementation. Even though Beijing dropped the odd-even rationing policy after Olympics, following the success of it, more complicated road policies were introduced by the government.

      Fine collected per violator: 200 Yuan

      Paris

      In March 2014, Paris introduced the odd-even rationing on its roads just for a day as an experiment. The experiment has been tried once before in 1997 and dropped similarly after a day. The restrictions were revoked after a day both the times because the officials had reached their pollution control goals and there was no need to continue the experiment.

      Fine collected per violator: €22

      Mexico City

      In Mexico City the odd-even rationing policy a.k.a Hoy No Circula (’today it doesn’t circulate’) was introduced as early as 1989. Cars were banned for one day per week depending on the last number on their number plate. On Mondays five and six were banned, on Tuesdays seven and eight, etc. Even though initially there was a genuine reduction in pollution levels (a drop of 11%), people started circumventing the rule by buying two cars with odd and even numbers. Thus the policy failed in the city as finally it led to an increase in air pollution (rise of 13%).

      Fine collected per violator: $23 - $69 (varies)

      Bogotá

      In Bogota, capital of Columbia, the policy was named Pico y Placa (’peak and plate’). It banned cars during the peak hours for two days per week. In order to make it harder for citizens to break the rule by buying two cars, the government kept on switching the combination of days and numbers every year. According to some reports, the policy failed to control pollution as many drivers chose to drive during off-peak hours thus rendering the government appointed peak hours as useless.

      Fine collected per violator : Driving while the restriction incurs a fine equivalent to 15% of daily minimum wages (varies)

      Europe’s Low Emission Zones

      Europe decided to control emission in its capitals by declaring certain part of the cities as LEZs and banning vehicles which failed a particular standard from entering them. European capitals were divided in the decision to create LEZs. Some cities like London, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, Lisbon, Rome, Copenhagen, Prague, Amsterdam, Milan introduced LEZs and allowed only vehicles that follow certain Euro standards inside the zones. While others like Zurich, Graz, Dublin, Luxembourg, Madrid, Brussels and Barcelona have either voted no for LEZs or have not yet taken a decision on the issue.

      Do cars cost a bomb in developed nations? No right? Still they have found ways to deal with the situation. Instead of reducing cars, why don't we concentrating on reducing population? We seem to be multiplying at a speed faster than light. Why not penalise people who have more than one kid?
      Safety of everyone would be ensured by handful of cars and other vehicles. Motorcycles are not unsafe, an ignorant car driver and a fast motorcycle constitutes a deadly combination.
      There are old, young, kids living happily in countries like vietnam.
      If you calculate the number of people using cars in delhi, more than 60% would not even be having a car in family. They are safe.

      On the lighter note, if a vehicle is allowed on road only for 50% of its usable life, the road tax should be reduced to half.

      in UK you need to pay arm for insurance not to mention parking, n price of cars.
      As per wikipedia, India has 18 cars per 1000 people. Sweden has 520, Denmark has 480 and Singapore has 149 cars for 1000 people. Not only these countries have more cars per person, they have much better public transport systems in place.

      Cars might be expensive in Singapore but see the number of Ferraries that turned up for the F1 event in 2010 Not to forget that the whole of Singapore is smaller than Bangalore.


      Per capita income India is $5,808 while that of UK is $39,826. Now a BMW 3 series costs approximately $52000 here while in the UK it costs $45000. Not only the car costs less in the UK, it is much more accessible to a person.

      I don't understand how making cars inaccessible for the masses be even termed as a solution for traffic congestion.

      What a wonderful theory, "Car is the most unsafe mode of transport invented and your chance of early death increases exponentially if your family owns a car" If your dream of tomorrow's India to be like Vietnam, I don't know what to say.

      You didnt understand.. There is much higher number of people who dont own a car, but are still safe! It was response to Your theory of old, kids need cars for safety.

      I am suggesting a way out of a problem. It is definitly better than your 'one kid' and population theory. How do you think having one kid would reduce Delhi's pollution. Even if delhites are casterated today, delhi's traffic would remain the same for the next 18 years. Good suggestion for delhi's traffic situation in 2034.
      If Delhi's future is Vietnam, it is better than what it would be on 1st Jan. If you have a car at home, you cant drive for 3 to 4 days per week. Atleast in Vietnam, you have the liberty to hit the road every day.
      Would appreciate a meaningful solution from you on the problem at hand.
