I was watching a TV programme last night…forget the name anyway…but it is some investigative programme
Something they were investigating were trucks involved in accidents in Nantou, and more specifically truck drivers that were high on betel nut who after hitting or crashing into somebody. They would drive over the victim again to make sure they were dead.
The logic being that it would be cheaper to give the family a pay off once for a death than perhaps having to pay money for the rest of their lives if the person was seriously or permanently injured
There was some guy whose daughter was killed by a truck driver, who kept making an issue of this in Nantou. His seventeen year old daughter was driven over twice and left for dead. He has recieved theats from the local truck drivers that if he didn’t stop making noise about it he would be next.
The cops, as always, will do nothing.
I was shocked at it. Why isn’t it illegal to drive on betelnut or is it one of those things that are illegal but the law is never enforced
