A driver was fined VND2.5 million (US$97.5) and had his driver’s license revoked for two months for backing a 45-seater sleeper bus along an overpass in Hanoi on Saturday.

Traffic police in the capital city on Sunday said they had imposed the fine on L.N.K., a 44-year-old resident in Phu Tho Province, northern Vietnam, effectively for steering the vehicle on Lang Ha Overpass, from which sleeper buses are banned, in Dong Da District, Hanoi.

At 9:00 pm on Saturday, he drove the vehicle to the overpass but it could not drive onto the overpass due to a height restriction barrier.

As a result, K. reversed the sleeper bus. Fortunately, the bus did not collide with any vehicles.

Commuters recorded and shared videos of the case to social media. Many netizens voiced their outrage over the driver’s act.

At the police station, K. claimed to be a new driver, so he did not know that sleeper buses are banned from Lang Ha overpass.
