With the rapid development of infrastructure and urban areas in Vietnam, the requirements of security and safety for cars are increasingly focused. In order to make it easier for state management agencies to track, monitor and handle problems arising from passenger car journeys, the Government has required transportation businesses to install surveillance cameras, according to the provisions of Decree No. 10/2020 / ND-CP on transportation business and business conditions.

This is considered as one of the effective solutions, helping to detect the driver’s violation while driving a vehicle in traffic, thereby ensuring traffic order and safety. Along with that, this regulation also helps monitor and supervise passenger pick-up and drop-off activities for passenger cars to ensure security and safety for both drivers and passengers, contributing to increasing service quality of passenger transport business.

Installation of surveillance cameras on vehicles under the management of passenger transportation businesses is a must in the coming time.

Installation of surveillance cameras on vehicles under the management of passenger transportation businesses is a must in the coming time.

However, up to this time, when it is less than 3 months from now to the effective date, most of the passenger transportation businesses have not really paid attention to this. Therefore, DfR of Vietnam has issued a written that requests the Departments of Transport to urge relevant businesses to strictly install cameras on passenger buses.

In addition, to ensure the correct implementation of the roadmap to install cameras on transport business vehicles (with a capacity of 9 seats or more), freight trucks, containers, tractors, DfR requires provinces to The governors of cities urges transportation businesses in the area that own vehicles belonging to the group to install cameras that need to be installed urgently before July 1, 2021, pursuant to Decree 10/2020.

The camera installation must ensure sufficient recording and archiving functions (specified in Clause 2, Article 13 and Clause 2, Article 14 of Decree 10) and satisfy the minimum requirements (specified in Clause 1, Article 1 of Circular 02/2021 of the Ministry of Transport). In addition, the images from camera should be transmitted to both transportation businesses and DfR, at a frequency of 12-20 times per hour (equivalent to 3-5 minutes per data transmission). The data will be recorded fully during traffic and should be provided to the police, traffic inspector and licensing agencies. Thanks to this, the process of surveillance will be transparent.

DfR also recommends that the Departments of Transport should release an induction document to educate businesses to choose cameras running on 4G or 5G platforms, which could be used for a long time in the near future.

The management also notes that businesses need to check and test features of camera, check image to ensure that they recorded enough information, including: driver’s license number of vehicle, license plate, coordinates of vehicle and actual time of circulation on the road (specified at Point b, Clause 2, Article 9 of Circular No. 12/2020 of the Ministry of Transport).
