Police in Ho Chi Minh City are searching for a truck driver who was caught on camera steering his vehicle using his feet while answering a phone call.

Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Van Binh, chief of staff of the city’s traffic police division, confirmed on Monday that they are verifying the case and gathering further evidence of the violation.

Preliminary information reveals that the container truck, bearing license plate No. 50LD-095.60, belongs to the Vietnam International Leasing Company based in District 3, Lt. Col. Binh said.

The vehicle was traveling on Phu My Bridge, which connects District 2 and District 7, the police official added.

The incident came to the attention of police officers after a video clip was shared on social media last Saturday.
