The Environmental Commission of the Megalopolis (CAMe) has been forced to launch yet another Phase I Environmental Alert, the sixth this year in Mexico City. CAMe informed that current atmospheric conditions and lack of wind have caused a stagnation of pollutants, generating ozone levels above the 150 points limit in the air quality scale. The northeastern part of the city was the first to register 151 points, setting off the Alert.

Due to this, on Wednesday vehicles with blue and red stickers, with license plates ending in 9 and 0 or 3 and 4, as well as holograms 1, 2, 0 and double 00, will have to suspend all circulation.

Up-to-date ‘Hoy No Circula’ and Environmental Alert information can be found at the Environmental Commission of the Megalopolis’ (CAMe) website or Twitter account.
