HA NOI (VNS) — The National Traffic Safety Committee ordered Ha Noi's traffic police and transport department on Saturday to investigate passenger coaches operating on prohibited roads based on evidence collected by video cameras carried in private cars.
A video clip submitted to the committee showed coaches belong to Doanh Ly transport business, which operated on Ha Noi - Thanh Hoa route, to pick up passengers on a prohibited road last Thursday near the Giap Bat Bus Station in Ha Noi.
It was later uploaded on the committee website at antoangiaothong.gov.vn.
In addition, the Thanh Hoa transport department inspected all footage collected from other cameras placed on Doanh Ly buses for evidence of other safety violations.
This is the second time since the beginning of February the committee has handled a traffic safety violation revealed by private video cameras.
In another case, a private camera revealed a truck travelling the wrong way down the Nhat Tan Bridge on February 19.
The truck was identified and tracked down by the police. The driver was fined with the help of a citizen's traffic video footage. — VNS
