The Beijing municipal government says it will limit issuance of new car plates to 240,000 annually in an effort to ease the capital city's traffic jams.

Car buyers will have to obtain car plates by drawing lots before they drive their cars on road, said the Beijing Municipal Commission of Transport (BMCT) at a press briefing Thursday.

The new policy will take effect on Jan. 1, 2011, BMCT said.

In 2010, more than 700,000 news cars were sold in Beijing, bringing the capital city's total number of automobiles to more than 4.7 million, statistics from the BMCT showed.

The capital city is expected to release a package of detailed rules on Thursday to ease its growing traffic gridlock, including axing new car license plates from next year.

Anticipated plates limit fuels car-buying frenzy

The capital city is expected to release a package of detailed rules on Thursday to ease its growing traffic gridlock, including axing new car license plates from next year.

With the public feedback period for the recently released draft plan to deal with the capital's congestion ending on Sunday, Beijingers are offering up their suggestions for how the city can put the brakes on its traffic problem.

Authorities have released a draft plan to ease the capital's traffic gridlock - including a cap on government cars. The plan, posted on the municipal commission of transport's website to gauge public opinion, could see Beijing take measures to ease population pressure in the downtown area and speed up construction of traffic infrastructure. It also advocates boosting public transport and strengthening regulations concerning car use.

Parking fees have been increased, license plate numbers determine when drivers can access their cars during the week, and purchase taxes for car buyers could be raised soon.

Beijing's traffic woes will get worse by 2015, experts are predicting, with 7 million cars in the city and traffic jams reducing the average rush-hour driving speed to 15 kilometers per hour.
