The requirement to install surveillance cameras on transport business vehicles makes many businesses worry, because this requires a lot of money, while this is an industry that is suffering a lot of damage due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Through the Government e-Portal, Mr. Tran Huy Khanh asked the Ministry of Transport to answer a number of issues surrounding this regulation.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, transport businesses have faced many difficulties in the past time. Many businesses, especially road transport enterprises, have been and will continue to be unable to operate. Service supply chains are disrupted; reducing frequency, output, and travel, causing stagnation of transportation activities.

Many businesses have had to downsize production, reduce scale, or even go bankrupt due to financial burden.

One of the issues that are worrying businesses is the regulation on installing cruise control cameras on transport business vehicles according to the provisions of Decree No. 10/2020/ND-CP, because this requires a lot of money to equip equipment required such as: Good equipment; operating in accordance with the standards and mandatory regulations of the management agency; the device works safely on the vehicle even though it is different from the original (electrical) system from the manufacturer.

To relieve those fears and worries, Mr. Tran Huy Khanh suggested the competent authority to consider and answer the following issues:

1. People and businesses want to know clearly the purposes and requirements of this regulation. Need an analysis and explanation about the old trip monitor that caught the installation businesses that have used up all the features?

2. According to current regulations, vehicles are not allowed to arbitrarily convert or change the vehicle's features.... (it was once forbidden to install additional audio equipment, televisions... on vehicles). Ask the management agency to analyze the similarities and differences with the installation of additional cameras, interference in the power system... with the previous regulations?

3. Why not require installation with all other vehicles, when all incidents, accidents... occur due to all kinds of human impacts (subjective or intentional)...?

4. Why is there no requirement for car manufacturers to integrate camera equipment in the initial design before leaving the factory, more reasonable than forcing users to install it later, affecting the electrical system structure, losing the original integrity of the manufacturer.

5. It is necessary to have professional opinions of experts and representatives of vehicle manufacturers existing on the Vietnamese market on connecting other equipment to their vehicles.

6. If necessary, an approved set of standards is required.

7. Announce the signal receiving infrastructure system in operation. There is a more reasonable route (due to the prolonged epidemic) for businesses to balance their finances and find a reasonable supplier.

Mr. Tran Huy Khanh asked the Ministry of Transport to explain so that people and businesses better understand the core benefits of regulations in this area. At the same time, he hoped for a more reasonable solution to reduce difficulties for the transport industry during this difficult period.

Regarding the recommendations of Mr. Tran Huy Khanh, the Ministry of Transport has the following feedback:
