It seems that the Vietnamese government is thinking of banning people who are too short, too thin or too small-chested from driving motorcycles.
The Ministry of Health recently recommended that people whose chests measure fewer than 72 centimetres would be prohibited from driving motorbikes - as would those who are too short or too thin.
The proposal must be approved by the central government to become law, would also prohibit people from driving motorbikes if they suffer from such health conditions such as enlarged livers or sinusitis. The rules would cover the vast majority of Vietnam’s 20 million motorbikes. Motorbikes account for more than 90 per cent of the vehicles on Vietnam’s chaotic roads. This will make it even harder for Vietnamese citizens to get to work because most are too poor to buy cars and commute with motorbikes such as scooters and mopeds.
From now on, padded bras will be best-sellers,” said Bo Cu Hung, a popular Ho Chi Minh City blogger.
Personally how would you feel if you got pulled over and the cop pulled out a measuring tape?
