I once read a trial transcript which contained the testimony of an alleged kidnap victim. Her description of the route taken by her and her friend’s alleged kidnappers prompted counsel for defense to ask her, “Did y’all go by y’all’s houses?” She answered, “No, because ___________ is a small subdivision.” I went over to the street in question and drove from it to one of their houses. Obeying the speed limit and stopping at a stop sign, I think it took about a minute. But I guess that the alleged victim meant that, relative to the size of the subdivision, neither of their houses was “by” the route the alleged kidnappers took.
Is that somehow the way that the accident was not near Chiayi City?
In the other poster’s defense, though, Google Maps says it would take 54 minutes. So I guess it was far in terms of time.
Oh, now I get it: @tando changed the tag. Well, then, belay my last, and carry on.
And I would never take a bus or train to Alishan, higher rates of accidents on both. Seems like at least once a year people die when a bus screams down the mountain or a train derails. Sometimes bus is okay but it knocks a car off that mountain.
