Pursuant to Article 21 of the Government’s Decree No. 39/2001/ND-CP of July 13, 2001 on administrative sanctions against acts of violating land-road traffic order and safety and urban traffic order and safety;
In order to help the land-road traffic inspection force perform their tasks according to the competence defined in Decree No. 39/2001/ND-CP and other relevant legal documents, which are uniformly applied throughout the country, the Ministry of Communications and Transport hereby guides a number of points as follows:
I. VIOLATION ACTS AGAINST WHICH THE LAND-ROAD TRAFFIC INSPECTION FORCE HAS THE COMPETENCE TO IMPOSE SANCTIONS AS STIPULATED IN DECREE NO. 39/2001/ND-CP:
1. In principle, the land-road traffic inspectors shall consider and handle only violation acts committed by people joining in traffic at static traffic places or points like car terminals, car-weighing stations, railway stations, ports or places where traffic means are parking or stopping as stipulated in Article 21 of Decree No. 39/2001/ND-CP of July 13, 2001. Land-road traffic inspectors must not stop land-road traffic means for examination, they shall stop land-road traffic means, which are being circulated, for examination or control only in cases where they detect that the violations may cause harms to traffic works, and must bear responsibility before law for their own decisions. All acts of abusing the tasks or powers of the land-road traffic inspectors to cause inconveniences or harassments to traffic means operators are strictly prohibited.
