Punto por Punto host Anthony Taberna discusses the proposal by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to expand the number coding scheme.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said that under the current number coding scheme, vehicles are banned from EDSA and other major Metro Manila roads from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m, depending on the last digit on their license plates.

Vehicles with plate numbers ending in 1 or 2 are barred on Monday; 3 and 4 on Tuesdays; 5 and 6 on Wednesdays; 7 and 8 on Thursdays; and 9 and 0 on Fridays.

The new proposal seeks to bar four numbers instead of two per day.

Plate numbers ending in 1, 2, 3, 4 would be barred on Monday; 5, 6, 7, 8 on Tuesdays; 9, 0, 1, 2 on Wednesdays; 3, 4, 5, 6 on Thursdays; and 7, 8, 9 and 0 on Fridays.
