By day, Viet, 33, works for Southeast Asian ride-hailing firm Grab, scooting along the tree-lined boulevards and winding alleys of the city. But from 9.30 pm until 1.30 am, he is an unofficial emergency responder, a red flashing light secured to his handlebars as he patrols the streets on two wheels.
