Traffic police in Hai Phong City, northern Vietnam fined a 41-seater sleeper bus driver VND20 million (US$821) for carrying 81 people on Sunday night, nearly double the vehicle’s capacity, police officers said on Tuesday.

Traffic police officers in Hai Phong stopped the sleeper bus on a National Highway 10 section in An Duong District for a check on Sunday night.

The vehicle plies a fixed route between Nam Dinh Province and Quang Ninh Province, both in northern Vietnam.

The driver and owner of the vehicle is Vu Van Tiep.

The bus, originally designed with 41 seats, was found to be carrying a total of 81 passengers.

In response, police mandated the bus owner to arrange for an additional vehicle to transport the excess passengers to their respective destinations.

The owner committed to not repeating similar violations in the future.
