I stepped in when I pulled up on a minor traffic incident which had just happened in front of me. Vietnamese girl who didn’t speak Chinese was on her bicycle and got hit from behind by a woman on her scooter.
It was a husband and wife on two separate scooters. Young daughter was with the dad and little brother was on the scooter with mom. There was a couple of other Vietnamese girls riding up ahead who turned around and came back. One of them spoke some Chinese, but I had a feeling the lady was gonna try to take advantage of the cyclist and sure enough she tried to offer her a few hundred NT.
The Vietnamese girl had just bought the bike not even a week before. It was obviously brand new and still had some protective packaging on the frame. The rear wheel was toast, flat tire, and the crank arm was bent. Since it was a cheap bike (only around 1800nt), I convinced the mom to pay her the cost of the bike and the girl could decide herself if she wanted to have the bike repaired or just get another one.
Husband stayed quiet most of the time but agreed with me that it was fair. Mom tried to blame the kid for not holding still and therefore wasn’t paying attention when she hit the girl, admitting guilt.
