Jul 17, 2017 Business & Finance Comments Off on Nearly 3 dozen tickets issued for cycling violations in Taipei
Taipei--Nearly three dozen traffic tickets have been issued to cyclists for riding their bikes illegally on sidewalks, the Taipei traffic police said Monday.
According to the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act, anyone caught riding on sidewalks (including covered sidewalks) outside of designated bike lanes or on any sidewalks that do not have signs allowing use by both pedestrians and cyclists will be subject to a fine of between NT$300 (US$9.9) and NT$600.
A total of 33 traffic tickets were issued on Monday, the first day the regulations were being enforced, and police reminded the public not to ride on sidewalks outside of designated bike lanes.
The measure is being particularly enforced on several major roads such as Xinyi Road, Ren'ai Road, Xinsheng South Road and Roosevelt Road that have a complete network of bike paths.
The crackdown is part of the city's efforts to promote a cycling protocol at a time when an urban bike lane network is being build and the number of cyclists is growing, according to the city government's Department of Transportation.
