The People’s Council of Ho Chi Minh City has ordered that heavy fines should be imposed on under-18 students driving motorbikes of over 50 cc capacity on city roads.
A traffic warden in District 7 of HCMC penalising underage students for violating traffic rules
Huynh Cong Hung, head of the Social and Cultural Sector of the Municipal People’s Council said that the education sector should closely coordinate with local governments and traffic wardens to discourage students who are still under 18 from driving heavy engine motorbikes to school.
Hung was speaking at a meeting held with the Department of Education and Training on February 9 on traffic safety education with special focus to mark ‘Traffic Safety Year 2012’.
Underage students should not only be fined but also issued warnings by school authorities, parents, traffic police and parking lot attendants, so as to discourage them, said Hung.
In addition, Hung proposed that the education sector must distribute brochures on traffic law to each and every primary, secondary and high school in the city.
The education sector must focus on raising students’ awareness of traffic laws, help resolve traffic gridlock in front of campuses and instill traffic safety habits at all levels. Moreover, the sector now needs to construct primary and high schools far from the bustling city centres.
