On Oct. 31, this truck accidentally dumped 20 bags of unsecured cement onto an expressway, causing a massive dust storm. 

Shen Kuang-lun, Head of Traffic Division, Zhongshan Precinct: “Around 20 bags of cement fell onto the road, affecting vehicular safety. Police moved the bags onto the shoulder and called the environmental protection department to clean up the mess.”

Police say the cargo truck was driving west on Civic Boulevard Expressway from Fuxing North Road when the incident happened. The driver says the bags weren't secured properly. After reviewing CCTV footage, police identified the truck and fined the truck owner.

Shen Kuang-lun, Head of Traffic Division, Zhongshan Precinct: “Under Article 30-1 to 30-2 of the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act, the driver could face fines of NT$3,000 to NT$18,000.”

Fortunately, there were no accidents or injuries. Police say transport drivers should make sure their cargo is securely fastened before hitting the road.
 

 

車輛接續通過,就在這時,畫面左方,一輛貨車準備開過去,好幾包不明物品,突然從後車斗不停掉落,揚起大量粉塵,散落的地點,更位在高架橋上,相當危險。

中山警分局交通分隊小隊長沈光倫表示:「約有20包水泥散落於車道上,影響行車安全,員警見狀立即將水泥包搬運至路肩,並通報環保局到場清除。」

約20包水泥,散落車道,就發生在上個月31號,警方表示,貨車行經台北市民高架,復興北路往西路段,駕駛聲稱,沒有捆綁好水泥,才會導致沿線掉落,而警方也調閱影像,找到違規貨車,製單舉發。

中山警分局交通分隊小隊長沈光倫表示:「依道路交通管理處罰條例,30條1項2款規定,可處駕駛人新台幣3千元以上,1萬8千元以下罰鍰。」


所幸當時,後方車輛距離肇事貨車,仍保持一定距離,才沒有造成更危險的事故發生,而警方也提醒,駕駛裝載貨物,必須再三確認,畢竟,釀成事故,不只吃上罰單,還可能波及其他人的行車安全。
