(PLO)- When the vehicle is detected in violation at the weighing station, the data will be transferred to the Inspector of the City Department of Transport to verify, prepare a handling file and send a notice to the vehicle owner, following the process of fines. current.
The problem of overloaded trucks has existed in Ho Chi Minh City for decades and sometimes seems to have become an incurable disease. Because the measures of patrolling, controlling, weighing vehicles… have been deployed by both traffic inspectors (TTGT) and traffic police (traffic police), but overloaded vehicles are still… Since then, the bridge is still broken, the road is still broken, accidents still happen…
Before and after 2000, both traffic inspectors and traffic police (TTGT and traffic police) were equipped with mobile scales. When patrolling, detecting that the vehicle shows signs of overloading, the traffic officer or the traffic police put out the mobile scale, forcing the vehicle to stop circulation and pass the scale. This method only has a small effect because when seeing the shadow of a traffic officer or a traffic police officer, the driver uses a trick to dodge, dodge, dodge, hide or stop the car from running.
From July 2016, Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport used four automatic weighing stations, two levels, without stopping at Giong Ong To 2 bridge, Ky Ha 1 bridge (for vehicles heading down to Cat Lai port) and bridge area. Ong Lon (for both directions on Nguyen Van Linh street).
According to the process, the truck passing through the primary scale with a camera mounted on it will be recognized, read the license plate, preliminary load…; then the parameters of the load, number plate, image of the vehicle will be transmitted to the cabin of the weighing station. At that time, the traffic police or traffic police will ask the driver to put the vehicle on the secondary scale to officially check the load.
But after a short time, the weight did not stop, through the two levels above, the drivers knew well and they also found a way… to bypass it. For example, on Nguyen Van Linh street in the direction from District 7 to Binh Chanh district, there are three lanes. The two lanes for trucks in the middle are equipped with automatic primary scales, the outermost lane is for cars without weighing scales, so many overloaded trucks when passing here deliberately swerve to the lane for passenger cars.
To prevent this situation, recently, Ho Chi Minh City directed to pilot the pilot fines for overloaded vehicles through one-level scales, without stopping at three automatic weighing stations in Ong Lon bridge area, District 7 and two-way at the collection station. An Suong – An Lac, Binh Tan district.
Accordingly, the weighing stations use quartz sensor weighing technology, placed negative under the road surface, bridge deck. The quartz sensor scales are highly accurate, with an error of less than or equal to 5%. When violating vehicles are detected at the weighing station, the data will be transferred to the Inspector of the City Department of Transport to verify, make a handling file and send a notice to the vehicle owner, according to the current process of cold fines.
Past the settlement time limit, if the vehicle owner has not or has not paid the fine, the handling unit shall send a notice to the registry office for inclusion in the warning category related to administrative violations. This is considered a solution to reduce manual labor on the road surface, improve handling efficiency, limit negative …
It is hoped that the use of new weighing technology and cold fines this time along with other drastic and synchronous solutions will fight more effectively with overloaded trucks, contributing to restoring road traffic safety and order. .
