Traffic rules rock
Traffic restrictions have been re-introduced in china's capital Beijing, in an attempt to bring back the clear skies seen during the Olympics. Each car must spend one day a week off the road, in a scheme based on registration numbers. Beijing residents miss the clean air and quiet streets they enjoyed throughout the Games. The new rules are expected to take some 800,000 cars off the road every day, according to the Beijing Municipal Committee of Communications.
