SUNGLASSES

In 2011, police in Vietnam were banned from wearing black sunglasses, chatting, smoking and putting their hands in their pockets while they are on duty in public places.
New, tough rules on behaviour also banned them from hiding behind trees to ambush people with fines, reading books, making or answering non-work related phone calls, drinking alcohol or eating at restaurants that illegally encroach onto pavements.
