The racers themselves will faced with fines of between VND10 million and VND20 million, while the car racers may be fined VND20-30 million.

The licenses of racers could be revoked for 24 months and their vehicles confiscated.

Other violations, such as riding a motorbike by pushing it along with one’s feet, performing street stunts like wheelies would be subject to fines of between VND5 million and VND7 million.
