According to the Committee, the rate of drunk driving accidents is high, especially in recent national holidays with 25-30 cases per day, killing more than 20 people. Road traffic accidents were mostly involved in alcohol use. 
The campaign aims to raise public’s awareness of traffic safety and encourage people to comply with traffic rules.
The campaign will be launched in Da Nang on June 14 and in HCMC on June 16.
