HÀ NỘI — A tractor-trailer in Hà Nội has been reported to have violated the speed limit 1,063 times within a month, according to the municipal Department of Transport (DoT).

This information was disclosed following a review conducted by the Hà Nội DoT, examining speed violation data obtained from the trip monitoring device system managed by the Department for Roads of Việt Nam.

Data from the system revealed that in Hà Nội, a total of 1,149 vehicles exceeded the speed limit more than five times per 1,000 kilometers.

Among these vehicles, a tractor-trailer belonging to the B.S. Trading and Service Cooperative stood out for violating the speed limit over 1,000 times.

In order to rigorously enforce regulations pertaining to passenger transport trading by automobile, the Hà Nội DoT is mandating automobile transport enterprises to meticulously review and verify the data regarding speed violations published by the DoT.

In the event of suspected data irregularities, enterprises are instructed to report to the Hà Nội DoT before Monday.

Enterprises must adhere to existing regulations and laws, ensuring proper driver management and traffic safety conditions.

They are obligated to oversee, inspect, and promptly address driver violations through the utilization of monitoring devices and cameras installed on their vehicles.

Additionally, the DoT stipulates that enterprises must issue sufficient identification cards and mandate drivers to swipe their identification cards when controlling vehicles, as prescribed in Clause 6, Article 12, Decree 10/2020 /NĐ-CP. — VNS
