HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội police last year discovered nearly 500 illegal parking lots, 193 illegal temporary markets and more than 600 restaurants operating after midnight.

This was announced on Wednesday at a conference summing up work of the Hà Nội Steering Committee 197, which was tasked with the implementation of traffic order and safety.

Speaking at the conference, major general Đinh Văn Toản, deputy director of the Hà Nội police, praised the Steering Committee 197 for its achievements last year.

The committee discovered more than 4,800 criminal cases, conducted an investigation on more than 4,500 cases and caught more than 8,300 wrongdoers. It destroyed more than 16,200 illegal kiosks and re-arranged more than 90 markets.

The traffic police granted administrative fines to more than 650,000 people, with a total fund of VNĐ201 billion (US$8.9 million). The committee also conducted a number of education programmes to raise residents’ awareness on traffic and public safety.

However, Toản said the committee needed to improve shortcomings the next time around.

The problem of encroaching roadways and pavements was repeated and not resolved completely.

Traffic accidents decreased, but the number of fatalities and injured people remained high.

The amount of personal vehicles increased sharply, creating difficulties for management.

Attending the conference, Khuất Việt Hùng, standing deputy chairman of the National Committee for Traffic Safety, highly appreciated the Steering Committee 197’s achievements.

Hùng said that 2017 was the year with the lowest number of traffic accidents, deaths and injured people. The number of deaths decreased by more than 400, compared with 2016.— VNS
