A young man has been filmed driving his motorbike on a highway in Vietnam without bothering to use his hands.

The unidentified man is seen laying down on the rear of a scooter and controlling the vehicle with his legs, according to footage sent to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Sunday by a reader named Thanh Tra.

The man was performing the stunt on National Highway No.1 in Binh Minh District of the southern province of Vinh Long, Tra said.

It is no surprise that the driver did not wear the compulsory crash helmet as per Vietnamese traffic law.

Dangerous as it was, the man carried out his performance with ease.

Driving with one's legs, however, is not new in Vietnam, where traffic laws are not always properly respected.

Videos showing such crazy drivers can easily be found on YouTube.

Even a woman would do so...

Whenever such videos go viral online, authorities begin working to identify the drivers to impose sanctions. And they have succeeded in some cases.

In November 2011, Hanoi police slapped a VND7 million (US$326) fine on Nguyen Dang Hung for driving a Honda Wave with his legs.

The clip capturing Hung’s act surfaced on the Internet, providing clues for police to investigate.

In November 2014, another video also caused stir as it showed two helmet-less men driving a motorbike with their legs while taking a selfie on a street in the central province of Quang Nam, Nguoi Lao Dong (Laborer) newspaper reported.

The drivers were identified as driving under the influence of drugs, according to Quang Nam police.

In yet another shocking six-minute video posted on YouTube in May 2013, three men were seen using their legs to drive and perform many other stunts that defied traffic laws and safety.
