As part of Beijing's ongoing efforts to improve its air quality and reduce congestion, the capital of the People's Republic of China will begin placing either green or yellow labels on all vehicles. These labels will correspond with specific areas that vehicles are allowed to enter, and all non-green vehicles will be banned from driving through the city center.

Beginning in June, yellow-labeled cars and trucks won't be allowed to enter areas inside the 5th Ring Road, and in October, that boundary will extend to the 6th Ring Road. The city's environmental and traffic authorities will reportedly monitor these areas to ensure compliance.

There are apparently still issues to be sorted out, though. It seems that there are a number of vehicles that enter the city center to deliver farm goods from outside the city, and authorities are currently figuring out how to deal with these vehicles.
