The programme restricts the transit of certain vehicles during weekdays and weekends according to the plate number and the car model. The older the vehicle is, the more stringent the restrictions are. In order to spur the introduction of Electric Vehicles in the end-use sector, the policy exempts this type of vehicle from the measures. The regulation states:


"Vehicles using non-pollutive energy sources or those that do not emit any polluters derived from combustion (electric, hybrid, solar energy" are exempted from the driving restriction policy.
