The Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training ordered its departments and schools across the country to reinforce road and river safety regulations following some serious riverboat accidents.
Under guidelines set by the ministry, schools must inform students to follow rigid regulations on road and river safety.
They must wear mandatory helmets on motorcycles and those living in river regions must wear life jackets when on a boat crossing rivers.
