Traffic Officer Clings On As Bus Speeds Off as he Tried to Issue Ticket, Vietnam

A traffic officer in Vietnam has gone the extra mile by clinging onto a bus doing more than 30mph as he tried to issue a ticket.

The officer in Hanoi told the driver to pull over but when he asked for his paperwork the driver started speeding away.

Undaunted, Second Lieutenant Nguyen Manh Phan leapt onto the front of the bus and held tight to the windscreen wipers.

He stared down the driver through the windscreen.

Mr Phan's heroics were captured on video as he yelled: "Call the police!"

The bus travelled more than half a mile before the driver, Phung Hong Phuong, eventually pulled over.

Phuong was chased by police and the Hanoi public. He was caught and arrested for acting against public officials.

The offence carries a maximum of three years in jail. Read More
