LAI CHAU (VNS)— The transport police in Lai Chau northern mountainous province yesterday kicked off a campaign to focus on punishing drivers who were found speeding.
Provincial transport policemen in co-ordination with the local police were deployed across the province to check drivers who were speeding and also measure alcohol levels among drivers, especially bus drivers.
The campaign will last until the end of this year.
Head of Lai Chau Province's transport police office Nguyen Van Luy said the main reasons for recent road accidents were mainly speeding, and driving while drunk. The increasing number of accidents occurred in rural and inter-township roads, he added. — VNS
