An 18-year-old student in Phu Tho Province in northern Vietnam had his motorbike seized and was fined VND7.5 million ($303.8) for letting go of both hands and using his leg to control the motorbike, the provincial police said on Monday.

Provincial traffic police officers had received reports of a young man driving a motorbike with one leg on a road in Thanh Ba District.

They later coordinated with police in Thanh Ba District to seek the youngster and found Tran Dang K., a resident in Thanh Ba District and a 12th grader of the Vocational and Continuing Education Center in Phu Tho Town of the namesake province.

At the police station, K. admitted his violations.

He was fined for driving the motorbike which lacks a rear-view mirror, taking both hands off the handlebars of the vehicle and using his leg to control the vehicle instead, and driving a vehicle with a cylinder capacity of over 50 cubic centimeters while he is not yet full 18 years old.

In Vietnam, people aged 18 years or older may drive motorcycles, three-wheeled motor vehicles with a cylinder capacity of 50 cubic centimeters and above.
