Ha Noi traffic police have proposed a plan to the Ministry of Public Security to strictly handle cases of traffic law violations.


Over the past months, police have detected and solved tens of violations, Col Pham Van Hau said at the meeting to review the results of work on ensuring order and traffic safety in the first six months of the year on Thursday.

The violation cases included vehicles with private number plates using badges granted by the Public Security Ministry, press and other State agencies for travelling, Hau said.

The ministry’s badge is granted to officials and staff to use in the parking area of the ministry office and it is not effective while travelling, he said.

The press agency badges are used at certain times when the vehicle is used to serve for a parliamentary session or other important meetings.

The press agency badge will be recovered after the meeting ends and is not to be used as a priority signal when travelling.

To deal with violators, the ministry should strictly handle these cases and enhance inspections to detect vehicles that use invalid badges, Hau said.

Col Le Xuan Duc, deputy director of the Traffic Police Department, said the ministry did not grant these badges for any individual or office to use them as a priority signal.

Violators will be strictly punished, Duc said.

At the meeting he also asked traffic police to strengthen checking and patrolling of overloaded vehicles travelling during banned times as many media have recently reported on.

To better manage overloaded vehicles, the traffic police need to join hands with other agencies, Duc said.

Transport inspections should be increased on key routes which lead to the central city such as Pham Hung, Khuat Duy Tien, Nguyen Xien and Nguyen Khoai roads, Col Dao Thanh Hai said.

He also asked Ha Noi traffic police to put in place more unexpected inspections of illegal sand mining areas. Traffic police teams should closely work together to detect early and prevent violations, he said.

Duc said the recent report of the Transport Ministry showed that overloaded vehicle violations had been reduced by 80 per cent.
