HA NOI (VNS)— Passenger bus enterprises face suspension of operations for up to three months if their vehicles exceed the speed limit or pick up and drop off passengers at unauthorised spots, according to a Ministry of Transport circular that will take effect in March.

With more and more transport enterprises violating traffic regulations, the new rule aims to curb these transgressions, said Khuat Viet Hung, head of the Department of Transport under the Ministry of Transport.

Issued late last month, the document also stipulates that enterprises will have their business license revoked for one to three months if they offer less than 70 per cent of their registered routes for one month or at least 30 per cent of their buses have their permits withdrawn for one year. Bus permits, displayed at the front of the vehicle, are withdrawn when drivers violate traffic regulations. — VNS
