Addis Ababa, April 17, 2020 (FBC) –Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, has introduced a rationing scheme that restricted private vehicles from the roads, effective as of today.

The restriction is part of the State of Emergency declared a week ago to stem the spread of COVID-19 and will remain effective for the coming five months.

The scheme bans private vehicles (Code-2) with odd or even plate numbers from roads on alternate days, according to the Ministry of Transport.

Accordingly, vehicles with even numbers or zeros on their plates are to be used one day, and those with odd numbers the next day, it said.

Regional states will also apply the system by taking into account the reality in their respective regions, the Ministry stated.

The directive banning taxis and cross-country buses from carrying more than 50% of their capacity will be implemented effectively, it added

  1. There different assumption among the people about odd & even numbers vehicle restrictions, such as like, because of lack of dollar to import fuel, to minimize jam,to prevent the COVID-19 and the like. for me it has some ambiguities, for instance if we said that lack of Dollar/if the concept is to minimize the jam , all vehicles i.e. the government, private and business sectors should have to consider/treated equally to keep the right of the people. By this time especially the government employee obtained at lock- down. But the government vehicles which obtained here and there in the city. if we said that about the presentation of the current pandemic the better solution is the peoples to use their own car to prevent himself,his families and as well as the nations. the people which having their own business they have to use the public transportation for their day to day activities. This means , it is an additional bardon for the public transportation and it contribute that the people to exposed for this pandemic. Therefore what is the reason behind of this directives/regulations. i think it is better that to revise the regulation again. Thanks with Regards!
