HÀ NỘI — Four garbage trucks that were driven in the BRT lane on Hà Đông District’s Tố Hữu Street on Tuesday have been identified.

This was stated by the Hà Nội traffic police division on Wednesday.

The trucks are under the management of the Hà Đông Urban Environment Joint Stock Company, which is headquartered on the street, Lieutenant Colonel Đỗ Mạnh Ninh, captain of traffic police team No 7, said.

The truck drivers have been asked to come to the police’s headquarters for questioning, he said.

A video clip posted on social media on Tuesday shows four garbage trucks, one behind the other, using the BRT lane in the Hà Đông-Tô Hiệu direction and then turning to Khuất Duy Tiến Street.

Two out of four drivers were identified by Nguyễn Viết Bính, vice director of the company, as Đỗ Mạnh Cường and Phong.

The trucks were being driven towards the Nam Sơn landfill in Sóc Sơn District, he said.

Cars drivers that use dedicated BRT lanes will receive fines of VNĐ300-400,000 (US$13-18) and have their driving licences confiscated for 1-3 months, according to regulations. — VNS
