NDO - A multiple-choice contest on traffic safety was officially launched on the VCNET social network on April 6 by the Communist Party of Vietnam Online Newspaper in collaboration with the National Traffic Safety Committee and the University of Transport and Communications.

This is the second contest of this kind, aiming to communicate and propagandise the laws on traffic safety and order.

2021 is the first year implementing the project “Decade of actions for road traffic safety” , launched by the Ministry of Transport and the National Traffic Safety Committee.

The contest will be held from April 6 at 9am, until September 20, weekly on the VCNet social network.

The event will contribute to improving the efficiency and quality of the education of the people on laws related to traffic safety and order as well as building a stronger traffic culture among people from all social strata.

The quiz focuses on knowledge regarding traffic safety; skills in handling various situations; and cultural behaviour while participating in traffic. All Vietnamese citizens over the age of 14 both in the country and abroad can compete.

In 2020, nearly 1.2 million accounts participated in the contest. The organising board presented 96 prizes, including 16 first, 32 second and 48 third, worth a total of VND128 million.
