BEN TRE — Authorities in southern Ben Tre Province have enhanced measures to assure traffic safety for students on the threshold of the new school year, especially those who go to school by ferry.
In Chau Thanh and Giong Trom districts, boats are not allowed to carry too many passengers, and must be equipped with life-jackets and other emergency flotation devices. Local agencies have also strengthened inspections of ferries and wharfs to prevent traffic violations.
Ben Tre has more than 100 wharfs. — VNS
