Anyone who wants to buy a car needs to prove they have a place to park it under a new proposal by the HCM City Transport Department aimed at restricting the number of private vehicles.
The proposal is part of the city's solutions to tackle traffic congestion. Statistics show there are now over 500,000 cars in the city, accounting for more than 30 per cent of the country's total.
The proposal immediately sparked public debate.
