In the petition to the National Road Administration, Deputy Director of the HCM City Department of Transportation – Mr. Duong Hong Thanh, reported that at the time the Vietnam-Cambodia agreement on land transportation took effect, only 40 cars of each country were allowed to cross the border. However, the number of vehicles has increased to 450, with a lot of problems.

According to the Department, the number of cars has increased by more than 10 times, but the number of tourists from Cambodia to Vietnam is small. Most of the passengers are Vietnamese.

Through Cambodian-managed agents and companies in Vietnam, these cars transport Vietnamese passengers for free from Vietnam to Cambodia to gamble. Cambodian buses also transport Vietnamese traveler within the territory of Vietnam.

The Cambodian coaches often use fake vehicle registration and fake driver's licenses or papers in Cambodian language. When they were stopped for breaking the law, Cambodian drivers often pretended to not know Vietnamese.

With the above shortcomings, the HCM City Department of Transportation proposed stricter control of Cambodian buses in Vietnam.
