Full description

Create a schedule where certain plate numbers are assigned to be on the road each day and all others either ride the bus or train on the days their plate number is not assigned. Example, plate numbers ending in 9 are scheduled to be on the road every Monday from 6am to 6pm. Therefore, on that day, only cars with those plate numbers are on the street/highways. This will help with congestion, traffic and minimize accidents.

Hey Jennifer! Thanks for your post, I am Matteo, one of the facilitators here.
Take a look at this post:

Similar to what you are saying.
Thanks for sharing nonetheless, continue the conversation there.
But remember that we are in the exploration phase, where we need to share our observations, experiences or frustrations, not in the solution phase just yet.
