The traffic police will not be enforcing the vehicle prohibitions Monday because it is a legal holiday.
Normally vehicles with the final license plate number of 1 or 2 cannot travel in the metro area at peak hours. The Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes said the restriction would be lifted for Monday because light traffic is expected.
The prohibition is in place to reduce the center city traffic flow.
However, Tuesday, vehicles with the final license plate number of 3 or 4 will be subject to a traffic ticket if they enter the area, as with vehicles with prohibited numbers for the rest of the week. The prohibited area is from La Uruca in the west and the Circunvalacion on the south and east.
Officials have not announced what they will be doing for Semana Santa, which begins April 18. April 21 and April 22, Holy Thursday and good Friday, are legal holidays.
State banks have announced that they will work Monday, April 18 through the late afternoon of April 20. Most non-essential government offices will be closed the whole week.
