The officer was left clinging on for his life for several kilometres after he leapt onto the vehicle to try to stop the man fleeing
Bizarre footage shows the moment a taxi driver desperately trying to avoid a parking ticket sped off down a motorway with a police officer clinging to his bonnet.
The officer was left clinging on for his life for several kilometres after he leapt onto the vehicle to try to stop the man fleeing.
The dramatic incident was caught on the dashcam of another vehicle in the Vietnamese capital city of Hanoi.
Earlier the policeman had tried to issue the man a ticket for a parking violation in the Soc Son District on the outskirts of the city.
But the taxi driver decided to speed offbefore receiving the penalty notice.
Keen that the man did not evade justice, the police officer jumped on the bonnet of the taxi, thinking it would make him stop.
However, the tactic backfired when the cabbie sped off along National Highway 3 which connects Hanoi with the northern province of Thai Nguyen.
