HA NOI (VNS) — The number of traffic safety violations on Ha Noi's highway No.3 has been increasing, endangering the safety of road users, reported the Lao Dong (Labour) newspaper.
Without the patrol of the traffic security force and police, pedestrians and motorbikes often travel on the road, which is supposed to be only for cars.
Passenger cars have also ignored traffic regulations by using many road sections for picking up and dropping off passengers. These violations cause danger to other vehicles on the road.
On the section of Nguyen Trai and Khuat Duy Tien, dozens of xe om (motorbike taxi) block part of the road by for waiting clients.
Lieutenant colonel Nguyen Anh Son of the traffic police of Thanh Xuan District admitted that the police and other traffic security forces do not control the violations because the road spans through three districts.
He said that there are several cameras equipped on the road to monitor the vehicles but the motorbikers and car drivers seemed not to care.
Recently, the Ha Noi Traffic Police has carried out patrols regularly on the road to curb the situation of passenger cars and taxi motorbikes picking up and dropping passengers on the road.
However, the violations continue to occur if the patrol teams are off work.
Lieutenant colonel Do Manh Ninh said there were difficulties in eliminating the situation of picking up and dropping passengers on the road by taxi motorbikes. — VNS
