Vientiane Times, 22 April 2015

Twenty five overloaded trucks carrying timber from Laos into Vietnam have been fined a total of VND430 million (more than 161 million kip) after an eight-day inspection at weigh stations in Vietnam’s Nghe An Province, local media reported. The trucks, among the 200 that were checked, were reportedly carrying from five to 30 percent more than allowed capacity during April 8 – 15, the Vietnam Net reported last week. Local Deputy Chief Transport Inspector Phan Huy Chuong told the Vietnam Net that the trucks underwent checks on National Highway 7 when travelling to the province from the Nam Can border crossing.
