Police in Binh Dinh Province, south-central Vietnam said on Thursday that they had fined a woman VND2 million (US$85) and revoked her driver’s license for two months after she was filmed letting her child sit on the roof of her moving car.

The provincial traffic police department imposed the penalties on P., a local resident, after officers managed to determine she is the owner and driver of the car in question.

A video circulated online on July 15 showed a boy, who was later identified as P.’s nine-year-old son, sitting on the top of the car while it was running on National Highway 1D in Quy Nhon, the capital city of Binh Dinh.

P. was the one who was driving the automobile at that time.

“There were only me and my son in the car at that time,” P. recounted the incident during a working session with officers at the police station. 

“I was just driving and talking to my son. 

“When I felt silence from the back seat, I turned around and found him already atop the car so I asked him to come down right away.”

P. admitted her wrongdoing and vowed not to repeat the violation.

Earlier this month, a 31-year-old woman in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang was slapped with a VND4 million ($170) fine and revocation of her driver’s license for the same dangerous act.
