THAI BINH (VNS) – Traffic police in Thai Binh yesterday afternoon caught red-handed a truck discharging untreated wastewater on a stretch of National Highway No 10.
Other commuters suffering the stink informed the police as they saw the truck driver dump the wastewater on a 500m section of the road that runs through the northern province.
Doan Duy Vuong, head of the traffic police division, said that the driver's violation would be handled under Decree No 171/2013/ND-CP.
The discharge not only polluted the surrounding environment but also created the risk of traffic accidents for other road users, he said. — VNS
