    Because of the heavy pollution

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentence?

    Because of the heavy pollution in the city, the local authorities have decided to introduce odd-even system of traffic rules.

    Re: Because of the heavy pollution

    It's missing an article. Can you see where?

    GoesStation,
    I have to admit I am not sure where the article should be. Could it be "the odd-even system..."

    Re: Because of the heavy pollution

    You've got the right position but the indefinite article is more likely.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
