Motorists' grace period for anti-mobile device law nearly up.
Motorists who use cellphones or other mobile devices will receive fines from Jan. 1
Drivers and motorcycle riders who use devices such as cellphones or tablet computers, whether to write text messages, read e-books or play games, will be fined between NT$1,000 and NT$3,000.
The law also applies to those stopped at traffic lights or stuck in traffic. 若汽機車駕駛人在等紅燈或塞車時有這些行為一樣會被開罰。
Motorists also need to be careful about another new regulation from Jan. 1 next year regarding a cut in the maximum legal BAC from 0.25 mg to 0.15 mg.
“This new regulation will be applied to three types of drivers: people who do not have a driver's license, those who have had their license for less than two years, and those who are professional drivers.”
People also need to be aware of drinking soups that contain high levels of alcohol, such as sesame-oil chicken soup and ginger duck soup before getting behind the wheel.
