Plate law to be suspended over the holiday weeks

Motorists will not have to worry about the final digit on their license plate over the holidays.

The Policía de Tránsito will not be enforcing the plate law from Dec. 21 to Jan. 3. This is the rule that keeps 20 percent of the vehicles out of the central metro area each weekday.

The police agency said that since the central government is on vacation and a lot of city residents are also, that the rule will not be enforced.

Unlike most traffic laws, the police had been vigorous in enforcing this measure.

Over the holidays, the traffic police shift their attention to the beaches where many Central Valley residents vacation.
