The forum is designed to:

- raise public awareness of the status of traffic accidents and the responsibility of every citizen to cooperate with the authority in acting for traffic safety;

- call upon information agencies and the public to denounce traffic safety violations;

- call for initiatives and suggestions from the mass population to solve this problem;

- urge every member of the public to exercise his right to supervising traffic guards.

The initiatives and suggestions from the public will be put together by a specialist panel and sent to the concerned agencies under the National Committee and the MT for processing. Any practical and useful input will be posted on the forum for the public and the concerned agencies for reference.

Speaking at the function, Minister Hồ Nghĩa Dũng said: “The Suggestions to Minimize Traffic Accidents Forum is aimed at not only soliciting public suggestions and initiatives for better traffic safety but serving as a bridge connecting members of the public and the authority, helping to make the sector’s traffic safety policies more practical, bringing about the public’s consent to the administrators, thus help to making the policies pay off quicker once brought to life.”

He said the Forum would also be a direct way of interaction between the public and the authority, being a place for the public to make complaints and look up for information regarding traffic safety. Members of the public are entitled to comment on the policy the Ministry has been and will be adopting.

Two weeks into its trial run (from December 25, 2006-January 10, 2007) the website http://www.mt.gov.vn/ has registered 5,112 visits, receiving 322 articles, with 65 suggesting initiatives that have been posted.
