The Weekend Car Scheme (also known as "off-peak cars" or OPC) was introduced with Cars sporting red coloured number plates. The scheme allowed the owner of a car to drive it only during specified hours, mainly on weekends. The objective of this system was to allow Singaporeans, especially the lower income groups, to own cars without contributing to traffic congestion. Car buyers who opted for this scheme were given tax rebates and a discount on their road taxes.
