It plans to fix 46 other hotspots in the last half of this year.
The measurements to the problem include setting up more warning signs and lights in crowed areas and along highways, and building more protective walls along dangerous mountain passes.
Typically, along the Lo Xo Mountain Pass on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, since last year the ministry has built protective walls and walls made from tyres at places vehicles fall into an abyss.
More cameras were installed and the road surface was widened.
The same measures were conducted on Highway No 6 passing Hoa Binh and Son La northern provinces.
Besides, two inspection stations were opened to check vehicles going down the slope.
