HA NOI — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has requested relevant agencies and local authorities to implement key measures to ensure traffic safety during the upcoming holidays at the end of this month.
The first measure is to mobilise additional task forces to patrol key traffic routes and areas prone to traffic jams.
Traffic police have also been instructed to find solutions to deal with congestion.
A clamp down on traffic violations will be implemented on major national highways with a focus on speeding, driving in the wrong lane and overloaded vehicles.
A crack down on illegal racing in major cities including Ha Noi, HCM City, Da Nang, Hai Phong and Can Tho will also occur.
At the same time, management of transport service providers will be tightened so that vehicles meet safety standards.
More awareness-raising campaigns on traffic safety have also been slated. — VNS
