HA NOI (VNS) — The police and inspectors from the Transport Ministry's Waterway Inland Administration Registration Department detected 274 offences during a campaign to tighten control over the operations of waterway vehicles and facilities.

During the month-long campaign which started on July 15, the police and inspectors examined 373 tourist boats, 87 hydrofoil boats, 50 waterway entertainment equipment, 48 floating restaurants and 31 tourist ferries.

The authorities in ten localities, including Ha Noi, Hoa Binh, Hai Phong, HCM City and Ba Ria-Vung Tau, reportedly fined 86 vehicles and ferries for breaking waterway traffic rules and suspended the registration of nine vehicles for their unsafe conditions.

The waterway police plans to increase inspections during the coming National Day holiday between August 30 and September 2 when the passenger traffic will rise. — VNS
