On Wednesday, the Delhi government suggested exempting vehicles from the odd-even restrictions if they happen to have a child in school uniform travelling in them. But how does one know for sure who are the parents who were coming home after dropping their kids or going to pick them up?
As this journalist pointed out on Twitter, it’s a pretty obvious problem:

Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal admitted this was a real problem and asked Twitterati for help.

Here’s what they suggested:
@ArvindKejriwal It’s hard and can be misused, but you should try to provide 1 guardian pass per child or so. Issued via school.— Nikhil Jois (@nikhiljoisr) April 7, 2016
But finally it is Twitter and there’s always jokes

Has the Delhi Chief Minister got a solution to this problem? Or will more public consultations be needed. We’re waiting to see.
