Traffic police in the province yesterday decided to revoke his driving license and impose a fine on driver Nguyen Bac V. He was seen in a video going viral on social media on October 4 refusing to give way for a fire truck in Quang Trung Street in Nghi Kim Commune while other vehicles actively gave their way to the special truck.
The driver admitted his violation explaining not hearing the wailing siren of the truck, which was dispatched to contain a fire in an emergency call-out.
The Luxus driver was stubbornly blocked by the car while moving on the street despite loudspeaker from the fire truck. Until approaching Quang Trung – Le Hong Phong crossroad , he turned right to give the way to the special vehicle.
