Driving along the Amalfi Drive (22 miles between Vietri sul Mare and Positano) on Italy’s Amalfi Coast can be equal parts harrowing and exhilarating! It can also be a traffic nightmare – so many cars, especially during the summer. That’s why local authorities have launched a numberplate system so that only cars with odd-numbered plates can travel on odd-numbered days and only even-numbered plates on even-numbered days during high season.
