New Delhi, Nov 04: As the odd-even road rationing scheme, an anti-pollution measure, kicked in from 8 am in the national capital, a traffic Police on Monday fined a driver for using an odd numbered vehicle, near ITO.

Speaking to ANI, the driver of the vehicle said,"I live in Noida, I had come for some work last night, I was not aware of the fact that Odd-Even scheme is coming into effect from today."

Under the scheme, apart from exempted categories, only those non-transport four-wheeled vehicles will ply on the roads which have registration numbers ending with an even digit.
