HÀ NỘI — The Traffic Police Department under the Ministry of Public Security has asked traffic police units across the country to strengthen inspections of automobiles using fake number plates.
The requirement was declared after recent reports that cars were using number plates that don’t match their registration documents, or number plates not been issued by competent organisations.
The violation affected traffic order and social security, the department said.
The inspection on fake number plates is the main duty for traffic police before, during and after the Tết (Lunar New Year) festival, which will occur next month.
The department will also establish inspection teams to check cars in big cities. — VNS
