China’s Xi’an City Seeks Feedback on Vehicle Restrictions

Xi’an, home of China’s terracotta warriors, may limit vehicle ownership to control traffic congestion, the latest city in the world’s largest auto market to consider such restrictions.

The city government put out a draft plan that includes a provision allowing it to “control the total volume of vehicles and introduce restrictions on their use according to traffic conditions,” according to its website. The proposal, for which authorities are seeking public feedback until Aug. 15, is one of 88 regulations listed in the document that also covers parking spaces, right of way rules and the use of bicycles.
