  • Vision Zero calls for pedestrian safety law in Taiwan

    The Vision Zero pedestrian safety advocacy group calls on Taiwan’s new congress to support a draft pedestrian traffic safety facilities law. The group recommends comprehensive implementation of sidewalks, removal of sidewalk obstacles, standardization of temporary sidewalks during construction, and explicit arcade project guidelines. The draft law must be proposed by the National Land Management Agency and approved by the executive branch before being reviewed by the Legislative Yuan. Despite the passing of a basic road traffic safety law in 2023, Vision Zero notes that the projected death toll may still exceed 3,000. The chairman of Vision Zero, Chen Kai-ning, proposes four amendments to the law, including the provision of physical sidewalks on wider roads, marking sidewalk designations on narrower roads, establishing basic sidewalk standards and non-permissible uses, and installing physical sidewalks beside arcades. Between January and November 2023, there were 2,759 road fatalities and 367,311 recorded severe accidents in Taiwan, representing an increase compared to the same period in 2022.

  • MOTC responds to citizen petition on traffic reform

    Taiwan’s Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) has responded to a citizen-led initiative calling for changes in traffic practices. The ministry announced that the regulation allowing two-stage left turns will not be abolished entirely but should be evaluated based on site-specific characteristics. The initiative also called for the prohibition of motorbikes on inner lanes of general roads and reform of the driver’s license test system. The MOTC stated that local governments should assess and plan motorbike lanes and two-stage left turn control measures according to their specific road traffic conditions. The ministry emphasized that motorbike riders should follow road sign guidance, and universal rules should only be followed in the absence of signs. In terms of the licensing system, the ministry has implemented a motorbike training program since 2019 to enhance driving quality and response capabilities. The program has been successful, resulting in a 56% decrease in traffic violations and a 35% decrease in accidents by 2022. The Highway Bureau of MOTC plans to continue promoting the program and implementing road training measures in 2024, periodically reviewing and adjusting the test content to optimize the training system for motorbike operators.

  • Yangmingshan Elementary first in Taiwan to take cold break

    Yangmingshan Elementary School, located in Taipei, Taiwan, has become the first school in the country to implement a two-day cold break due to a cold front. Principal Liang Chih-huan made the decision to prioritize student safety, considering the potential for snowfall at students’ homes and icy roads. The suspended classes will be made up on the following Monday and Tuesday. Additionally, there is a possibility of snow at Yangmingshan’s Erziping trail, leading to an increase in snow tourists. Nearby Chinese Culture University is already on winter break, but administrative staff will take time off based on actual conditions. In the event of snowfall, vehicle restrictions will be imposed on Yangde Boulevard, the main road to Yangmingshan, with only vehicles with passes permitted to proceed. Snow chains will be required for vehicles accessing the mountain’s control and snow viewing points, and buses will not be allowed in the controlled areas.

  • Kaohsiung Light Rail spurs new left-turn policy at 10 points

    The Transportation Bureau of the Kaohsiung City Government has announced that left turns will be permitted at 10 intersections along the route of the Kaohsiung Circular Light Rail. In order to maintain traffic flow and address concerns from drivers, the bureau has reviewed and assessed traffic regulations. To minimize the impact on through traffic, vehicles will be directed to stay to the right about 50 meters upstream from the intersections. Additionally, changes to signal timing and settings on main roads surrounding the light rail, including Dashun Road, Jiangong Road, Dafeng Road, and Dachang Road, will be implemented. These adjustments aim to respond to actual traffic flow and will be fine-tuned as needed.
