Police in Da Lat City have summoned a group of women who stopped their car in the middle of a two-lane street in the resort city to do aerobics, occupying half the street.

Police said Monday that they were completing procedures to decide a fine on the women.

On May 17, five women were seen performing aerobic dance moves right on a two-direction street that leads to Tuyen Lam Lake, a tourist destination of Da Lat City in Vietnam’s Central Highlands.

They were dancing in the front of their car, which was parked on the street, blocking traffic.

There was music coming from a speaker when they were dancing.

The driver of the car was later identified as a local woman aged 41.

She told police that the group was heading to the lake and stopped halfway to take some photos.

She said the aerobics performance on the street was spontaneous and that they had danced for five-seven minutes before people from another car coming from the opposite direction told them to stop, warning them of the consequence they might cause.

A government decree regulates fines of VND100,000-200,000 (US$4-8) for gathering and activities blocking the street and affecting traffic circulation.

Those who stop cars on the street illegally can be fined VND400,000-600,000.
