Plate restrictions suspended for el Día de la Madre

Those taking Mom out for lunch Wednesday will not have to worry about the last number on the vehicle license plate.

The Policía de Tránsito said that the license plate restrictions will be suspended because Wednesday, el Día de la Madre, is a national holiday.

Usually restrictions are in place in the metro area from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays vehicles with the last digit on the plate of 5 or 6 are prohibited during those hours.

Wednesday is a holiday in which employers must pay their employees and give them the day off. Although the law says that the day may not be swapped for another, many employees agree to take the Friday off instead of the Wednesday.

Those who work Wednesday are supposed to be paid double.
