Lawyers - PM urges more effort to curb traffic accidents
Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has ordered the National Committee on Transport Safety and relevant ministries and sectors to apply stronger measures in preventing traffic accidents across the nation.
Dung made the request during a meeting with members of the National Traffic Safety Committee and the ministries of Transport, Public Security and Health who met to discuss ways to lower the nation's high rate of traffic accidents. Minister of Transport Ho Nghia Dung, who is also chairman of the Transport Safety Committee, said in the past three years the number of transport accidents reported nation-wide dropped by 5.4 per cent and fatalities fell by 13.2 per cent while injuries were reduced by 6 per cent.
"These gains are attributed to the implementation of various measures," Dung said.
However, he added that while traffic accidents had reduced slightly, they were still unacceptably high.
"Too many accidents are still occurring due to various reasons, including motor riders not wearing helmets, drink driving and weak enforcement of traffic and transport safety laws," he said.
Deputy Minister of Public Security Le Quy Vuong said that up to 80 per cent of accidents were the result of motorists or pedestrians not following simple rules.
Minister Ho Nghia Dung said it was imperative to impose higher fines on those who were caught violating traffic rules.
"Parallel with raising fines, we should conduct a census of motor vehicles on the road while raising people's awareness about the transport safety law, particularly the campaign to wear safety helmets," said Dung.
Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung took note of the reduction of transport accidents during the past three years and called on the ministries of Transport, Public Security and local governments to exert further efforts to make a breakthrough in curbing traffic accidents.Participants attending the meeting included three Deputy Prime Ministers Nguyen Sinh Hung, Truong Vinh Trong and Hoang Trung Hai.
