One of my biggest pet peeves about living in Taiwan is how drivers always fail to yield to pedestrians at a crosswalk when they are making a turn. This must cause hundreds of accidents a year in Taiwan, all of which are preventable.
Per the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act of the Republic of China “Any car driver who fails to yield pedestrians on a pedestrian crosswalk shall be fined from NT$1,200 to NT$3,600.”
Whenever some hot-headed local makes an attempt to swerve into a crosswalk while I’m crossing I stop, look him right in the eye, and point to the crossing sign. So far that’s gotten me two middle fingers, but if law enforcement won’t act who will?
