HA NOI (VNS)— Waterway police across the country will commence a raid on waterway traffic from today to the end of next month following guidance from the Ministry of Public Security.
The raid aims to ensure greater traffic safety during the upcoming holiday spanning Vietnamese Liberation Day April 30 and International Labour Day May 1.
The raid also aims to correct flaws in traffic control, especially in tourist provinces and cities such as Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Ba Ria-Vung Tau and HCM City.
The police will also join with local authorities to inspect waterway passenger transport vehicles and hand out strict punishments for violations.
The strict inspection will require vehicles in poor condition and lacking rescue equipment to be suspended from operation. — VNS
