A woman was fined VND17 million (US$693) and had her driver's license revoked for six months for driving against traffic on an expressway connecting Hanoi and northern mountainous Lao Cai Province on Thursday morning, the local traffic police said on Saturday.

The driver, D.T.A.D., residing in Lao Cai Province, attributed her violation to the fact that she was not versed in the road.

In particular, at about 10:59 am on Thursday, she was driving a car against traffic in a lane close to the median strip, causing many other drivers to brake their vehicles abruptly to avoid her car.

Her act was recorded by a black box of another car on the expressway.

The video about her reckless driving has sparked public concerns after it was uploaded to social media.
