The city is the first in Viet Nam to promote the use of environmentally friendly vehicles by law enforcement officials.
"We have provided 235 bicycles for local policemen working in 45 precincts since 2012 as a way to enhance the capabilities of policemen. Bikes are agile and easy to navigate and have create a more friendly dynamic between policemen and local residents," Phuong said.
"The department encourages them to be widely used by local policemen to provide an example for police forces around Viet Nam. Of course, it depends on proper areas and tasks," he said.
Nguyen Van Tien, lieutenant colonel, head of Hai Chau 2 Precinct, in the downtown Hai Chau District, said bicycles made patrols easier in small areas with dense populations.
"It helps us to move easily and promotes friendly manner among policemen and local people. The community will see us as friends and they provide me with more information. It also helps us carry out daily activities in order to keep the city clean and healthy," Tien said.
Da Nang City also employs the use of battery-powered cars for tourists travelling along coastal roads such as Hoang Sa, Truong Sa and Vo Nguyen Giap.
In the central region, Hoi An was the first city to promote the use of bicycles as part of a plan to create Viet Nam's first eco-city.
