​Hanoi woman fined, has license revoked for making careless U-turn on bridge

​Hanoi woman fined, has license revoked for making careless U-turn on bridge

Sunday, March 18, 2018, 14:05 GMT+7

A woman in Hanoi has been fined and had her driver's license revoked temporarily after she was caught attempting to do an illegal U-turn on a local bridge and verbally attacking another commuter.

The traffic police division under the municipal Department of Police confirmed on Saturday they had imposed the penalties upon Trinh Thi Tuyet for her violations.

Tuyet, 55, who resides in Vinh Phuc Ward, Ba Dinh District, had been summoned to the local police station earlier the same day for a working session regarding her wrongdoing.

She was fined VND1.35 million ($59) and had her driver’s license revoked for two months for her two traffic offenses, namely “failure to drive on the right side of the lane” and “backing a vehicle without noticing.”

Tuyet committed her violations along the Cot Bridge in Dong Da District at around 8:15 am on Friday, and the incident was caught on the dashboard camera of Phan Manh, another commuter.

According to the 90-second video clip, Tuyet’s Toyota sedan was traveling on the narrow bridge when she suddenly attempted to make a U-turn, despite being surrounded by multiple vehicles.

The car then hit a motorbike laden with goods, whose driver apparently failed to respond to the unexpected move.

Tuyet then stepped out of her vehicle and started to scold the motorbike driver.

After the footage was uploaded to Facebook on the same day, netizens were angry at the car driver’s offense and her uncivilized behavior toward the motorcyclist.

The National Traffic Safety Committee later requested Hanoi traffic police officers to probe the case and identify the offender.
