2. Dash cams installed on container trucks and trailers must record and store images of the driver during traffic.
The image data recorded from the camera on the transport business vehicle needs to be transmitted to the transport business unit and the General Department of Roads with a frequency of 12 – 20 times/hour (equivalent to about 3-5 minutes/time). .
In addition, transport business units must ensure that when installing cameras, they must register with the minimum information including: driver’s license number, vehicle registration number plate, vehicle’s GPS coordinates and time time; Choose from cameras running on 4G or 5G mobile platforms.
