“Decree No. 100/2019 has imposed stricter fines (by setting out new penalty regulations and determining higher fines) that are able to deter from acts of drunk driving and will contribute to limiting the number of traffic crashes involving drinking and driving. Communications agencies need to disseminate these regulations to the public so that they are aware and observe them to enhance traffic safety as well as protect themselves and others", Mr. Bui Tuong Vu, Legal Advocate and Director of THƯ VIỆN PHÁP LUẬT Co., stressed.
