Driving Etiquette - Taiwan

  • 2008/04/21(月) 00:31:26

The traffic in Taiwan can only be described as chaotic.

An interesting phenomenom is that most intersections have a series of white lines painted on the road itself, parallel to the kerb, and extending from one side of the road to the other. They look suspiciously like the lines we'd call a pedestrian crossing, only they must mean something else. Probably something like 'objects bigger and made of more metal have right of way'.

When we learn how to drive, we are told to leave at least 2 - 3 car lengths between us and the car in front. None of us have been angelic about this, but in Taiwan this would mean 2 - 3 cars from the next lane would cut in, as well as 2 - 3 of the cars riding in between lanes.

This is bad enough, but if you happen to be in the middle lane of three, this would mean that 8 - 12 cars would be jostling into the spots.

And then there's the scooters...

It's actually really quite simple - the laws of physics have been waived so that the laws of traffic can be waived accordingly. This means that when 9 - 12 cars, plus a couple of dozen scooters converge on a single lane, they get away with it because there is an anomaly that allows multiple material objects to occupy the same point in the space-time continuum.

這篇新聞(微笑)
個人認為 如果這篇新聞出現在任何一個國家的報紙上我都不會感到奇怪
但是是英國

XD很有趣喔
Why don't you compare with the underground in London and the MRT system in Taiwan?

甚至Londoner常常引以為傲(?)的公車 除了誤點 除了司機態度很差
還會三不五時有公車司機不爽開車的事情發生
我還遇到不少次

地鐵也是 下個小雨就淹水不能開
我那次趕不上學校小旅行差點去翻桌
"It's just a little rain!!!!"
開到某一站還有可能突然全部熄燈
然後車長廣播:"呃~我們可能必須停下來處理一下這台車的技術問題."
隔了五分鐘:"呃~這個問題超乎我們原先的預估 可能必須要十五分鐘才能解決 請無法忍受的乘客於本站下車轉公車服務."
重點就是那站是什麼鳥地方 公車極少

在我家旁邊的DLR已經是全倫敦最先進的一條
週末停開不講
重要的Friday Night居然只開到晚上十一點
大概當大家都是有錢人自己會搭小回家

英國人的想法真的很有趣
