Iraq announces new rule for private cars
font size    

Private cars will be only allowed to move on the roads every other day in an effort to ease gasoline shortage, said a new restriction announced by Iraq's government on Sunday.

A statement issued by the cabinet said the cars whose plates end with even numbers and odd numbers will use the roads every other day.

The new restriction will be imposed from Tuesday, the statement said, adding that the decision will not include the public transport, trucks and government vehicles.

Hundreds of Iraqi drivers are waiting in long queues outside the gas stations in all Iraqi cities, as the government failed to ease gasoline crisis because of violence and lack of security in the war-torn country.
