Taxi company Vinasun said it has asked a driver to report on an incident in which three foreign passengers hung out of his cab’s windows and drank beer while he was driving along a crowded street in Ho Chi Minh City last week.
Someone took photos of the three white men on Ton Duc Thang Street in District 1 last Thursday and posted them on the internet.
The photos have gone viral.
The men seem unaware of the risks they pose to others on the street as they cheer, smoke and drink as if at a party, using the cab’s roof as a table.
Le Nguyen Ngoc Quynh, deputy communications director of Vinasun, told Thanh Nien the company has asked the driver, whose name has not been revealed, for an explanation.
A city Traffic Police official said the driver would be fined if his passengers were found jeopardizing others’ safety.
He said the driver should have stopped in this case, adding if he had been afraid of displeasing his passengers, he should have sought police help.
