HÀ NỘI — Traffic police nationwide will start a campaign to inspect and handle road violations from May 15 to June 14, the Traffic Police Department announced on Thursday morning.
The nationwide inspection of vehicles aims to ensure traffic order and safety, especially after the Reunification Day (April 30) and May Day (May 1) holidays and loosening of social distancing measures.
According to the Traffic Police Department, the inspection will put into action the Law on Prevention and Control of Harm of Liquor and Beer; the Government’s Decree No.100/2019 /NĐ-CP stipulating punishments in the field of road and railway transport, and the Ministry of Public Security's plan on the prevention of illegal racing.
Traffic police nationwide will arrange officers, vehicles and equipment to inspect all types of road vehicles, especially buses, trucks, cars and motorcycles.
Local traffic police will be allowed to stop vehicles to check violations involving alcohol, drugs, speeding, not wearing helmets and others.
Police will patrol at peak times in each locality, aiming to reduce traffic accidents and congestion.
The inspection will also focus on the Expressway and National Highway 1 (from northern Lạng Sơn Province to HCM City).
For other routes, directors of the provincial or city police department will implement an appropriate traffic inspection plan.
Traffic police will also use cameras to record all activities during their shifts, monitoring any road users disobeying traffic police or using force against officers.
The Traffic Police Department requires all officers to follow the Ministry of Health’s instructions on wear masks, gloves and protective equipment to ensure safety for themselves and drivers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. — VNS
