Taiwan drunk driving

Taiwan is always considered as one of the safest countries in terms of road safety and security. However, it is a fact that the island nation is marred by drunken driving incidents in recent times. But a new report has shown that there is a sharp increase in such incidents compared to last year which is a matter of concern. United Evening News reports that Taiwan has already seen 80 percent of last year’s total in just six months when it comes to drunk driving cases.

The report reveals that a total of 77 incidents caused 81 deaths in the last six months from January to July. However, the fatalities are expected to be doubled compared to last year if the same trend continues. According to the United Evening News, the death toll has gone up and down with 102 deaths in 2016, 87 in 2017, and 100 last year.

Also, a stricter approach to drunk driving was taken earlier this year due to an increase in cases. For this reason, more thorough checks have been conducted since July 1. But that does not seem to have helped because six people died in drunk driving incidents this July compared to just two in July 2018.

But police pointed out that the number of last month’s drunk driving incidents dropped from more than 9,000 two years ago to 8,546 this July. United Evening News also quoted police officers saying “they were on the lookout for drunk drivers every single day but that even though the checks had become more stringent, there were still too many citizens who drank and drove”.
