Vietnamese Students Warned to Wear Helmets on Electric Scooters, Bikes
The Da Nang Department of Education and Training said all students who ride electric bikes and scooters to school must wear helmets. Those caught without helmets will be reprimanded and the offense noted on their records.
Repeat offenders will be suspended from school for a year, the department said.
The compulsory helmet law for motorbike riders, which came into effect on December 15 last year, so far has not been applied to riders of electric bikes.
Electric bikes have been in demand in Vietnam as an alternative means of transport in the wake of surging fuel prices and the introduction of the compulsory helmet law.
