HANOI, Vietnam - A senior traffic inspector in Vietnam whose driving licence was suspended after he was found guilty of two hit-and-run collisions on the same day while has been reduced to the ranks.
Le Van Qui was deputy head of a traffic inspection team when he was arrested. He is now an ordinary traffic cop - without a driving licence. He will have to be re-tested.
Qui was driving a car that collided with a motorcycle and, soon afterwards, a bicycle. Three people were injured in the first collision but he refused to take an alcohol test and threatened to take the police to court for arresting him.
He was fined $300 and his driving licence was suspended for two months.
None of the injured has pressed charges.
