The suspension of the measure will be in effect on Monday, April 15th, the date to which the holiday was moved.

The vehicle restriction for Thursday, April 11th, the date commemorating the Battle of Rivas, will remain in effect for vehicles with license plates ending in the digits 7 or 8. Due to the holiday being moved to April 15th, the suspension of the measure will apply only for that Monday.

This means that the restriction will remain in place as usual on Thursday, April 11th, while on Monday, April 15th, there will be free circulation for vehicles with license plates ending in 1 or 2.
