Nine out of 24 districts in the city have implemented the toll collection since June. Other districts have completed listing the number of registered vehicles in their localities.

Previously, the Ministry of Finance had proposed the Government to halt collecting the toll on motorbikes from January 1, 2016 to wait for more reasonable and convenient collection measures.

The Hanoi Department of Transport has started collecting the fee from January 1, 2013 yielding VND55 billion (US$2.45 million) the same year, VND36 billion in 2014 and VND3.6 billion in the first six months 2015 accounting for 3 percent plan.
