City delays ban on modified vehicles until June

 

The HCM City government has decided to delay a ban on modified three- and four-wheel vehicles until June to give their owners time to find other jobs following agreement of the Prime Minister.

 

These vehicles will operate in the city from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. until June 30, the city government said in a decision announced just before the Government resolution banning modified three- and four-wheel vehicles in circulation from January 1, 2008.

 

The vehicles collecting garbage are given an extra two hours until 6 a.m.

 

But those vehicles without license numbers and pushcarts can only be used until February.

 

In HCM City alone, the ban will affect some 60,000 people whose livelihoods depend on these modified vehicles, mainly poor people.

 

The city administration also asked relevant agencies to provide financial assistance for the owners and operators to find other jobs.

 

The Saigon Transportation Mechanical Corporation (SAMCO) has been asked to prepare a project to produce four-wheel vehicles and submit it for consideration by next month.

 

The city�s Traffic Safety Board and the Committee for Poverty Reduction will cooperate with districts to analyze the number of poor families using such vehicles to earn a living. The 100 poorest ones will be presented four-wheel vehicles.
