Large glaring LED screens installed along Ho Chi Minh City streets have distracted many road users, thus threatening traffic safety.

These screens can spread diverse advertising messages and create a strong impression.

However, local residents have expressed discontent, citing the intense brightness and continuously moving images of the LED screens.

They argue that these screens, combined with street lights and vehicle lights, contribute to inconvenience and disturbance for them.

Such LED screens are often installed on the façade of high-rise buildings, along streets, and at intersections.

As a case in point, residents who halted at a traffic light at the intersection of Tran Huy Lieu and Nguyen Van Troi Streets in Phu Nhuan District, as well as another intersection of Dinh Tien Hoang and Dien Bien Phu Streets in District 1, reported being dazzled by the LED screens.

Similar facilities are also situated along the median strips of Truong Son Street in Tan Binh District and Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street in District 3.

The municipal Department of Transport has recently concluded that LED screens showing moving images or videos with the brightness changing continuously may reduce the attention and visibility of road users. 

As a result, the department required removing a LED screen on an overpass on Ba Thang Hai Street in District 10, where two people died in traffic accidents due to their lack of focus.
