Speed 3: Highways of Hanoi

This picture has been making its rounds on the news wires today: a Vietnamese policeman hanging on to the front of a speeding bus.  From the AP release:
In this photo made from a video filmed Monday, April 9, 2012 and released by Hanoi Police, Vietnamese traffic police 2nd Lt. Nguyen Manh Phan clings on to the windshield wipers of a moving bus as he goes on a wild ride for nearly a kilometer (0.62 miles) after the rogue driver tried to avoid a ticket in Ba Vi District outside Hanoi, Vietnam. Phan ordered the bus driver to pull over the 39-seat passenger coach but the driver allegedly refused to show his paperwork and drove off, but not before Phan leaped onto the front. The driver eventually pulled over after being chased by police and residents. Even with the bus stopped, Phan stood calmly in front of it, still hanging on to the wipers.
Heh. Paging Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves!
