What do you do when an automobile starts travelling the wrong way in your direction? You jump off your motorbike, block the car, yell for police, and then leave.
At 5pm on Tuesday on Đinh Tiên Hoàng Street in front of the HCM City Television Station, a driver of a four-seat car cut into the opposite lane where a young foreign man was travelling on his motorbike.
The foreign man, who was never identified by name or nationality, used his motorbike to block the car and shouted for help from traffic policemen on duty at a nearby intersection.
Witnesses said the car left the site after a discussion with traffic police, after which the foreigner drove away.
The police, who had arrived a bit late, said they were focusing on easing traffic jams and did not have enough time to punish traffic violators then. But the car driver had obviously been given a lesson.VNS
