An American man holding a baby was injured after a motorbike driver drove onto the sidewalk at a condominium complex in the Thanh Xuan District of Hanoi this morning , Apr. 7, 2018 and nearly struck them.
The sidewalk is part of a plaza that is clearly marked no motorbikes allowed and no parking.
A fight ensued during which the young Vietnamese driver took off his helmet and struck the American man leaving a three inch gash on his head and a sidewalk covered with blood.
Many residents of the complex say motorbikes driving on the sidewalk and plaza is a continuing and serious problem but they are afraid to speak up for fear of retaliation by the drivers.
