Vietnam: Letting animals defecate on the road will fined up to 100,000 VND

Animal waste on sidewalks and roadways, not only affects general hygiene but also causes unnecessary accidents. So how will individuals be punished for letting animals defecate on the road without cleaning up in Vietnam?

Letting animals defecate on the road will fined up to 100,000 VND

Article 34 of the Law on Road Traffic 2008 stipulates that Persons guiding animals on roads shall keep them close to the edge of the carriageway and ensure road sanitation.

In Clause 1, Article 10 of Decree 100/2019/ND-CP, a fine of between VND 60,000 and VND 100,000 shall be on the pet owner when they fail to ensure road sanitation.

1. A fine ranging from VND 60,000 to VND 100,000 shall be imposed for:

a) Failure to give way; failure to give hand signals when making a turn;

b) Failure to comply with traffic light, traffic signs and road markings, except for violations specified in Clause 3 of this Article;

c) Failure to bring adequate equipment to contain waste matters of animals or failure to clean up waste matters of animals on the street;

d) Riding or leading animals on the wrong part of the street; taking them to a blocked road, restricted area, or roadway;

dd) Allowing an animal to walk on public roads or cross the street by itself;

e) Going two abreast or more;

g) Leaving an animal drawing a vehicle without a rider;

h) Using a vehicle without signals.

Thus, ensuring sanitation on the road when leading animals on the road is the responsibility of the pet owners. In the case of animals defecating on the road but the leader does not clean them, they will be fined 60,000 VND to 100,000 VND.
