Kaohsiung Records 257 Drunk Driving Cases in 4 Days 高市警局11/14起取締酒駕 4天已257件

Many people are used to eating sesame oil chicken and ginger duck in winter. Kaohsiung Police Department set up sobriety tests for 9 consecutive days starting on the 14th. In just four days, 257 drunk driving cases were recorded. 
 



Pour in the rice wine and set a fire to burn off the alcohol. Winter is here. Sesame oil, shochu chicken, and even ginger duck are all tonic foods. Rice wine is often added to these dishes, causing people to accidentally exceed blood alcohol standards. This man in Kaohsiung was stopped by the police when he crossed a yellow light on his motorcycle on the 16th. The police found his alcohol test value exceeded the standard and reached 0.46.
 

Police: “Did you just add rice wine? How many glasses did you drink?”
Man Suspected of DUI: “Yes.  Just two or three glasses. ”


The man recalled that two bottles of rice wine were added to the soup. He was then prosecuted for drunk driving. According to statistics from Qishan Precinct, 7 cases of drunk driving have been recorded in the jurisdiction in the two days between the 16th and the 17th. A total of 31 cases have been recorded since the beginning of November this year, compared to 18 cases in the same period last year, an increase of 13 cases.

Hung Tzu-tang, Station Chief, Qishan Precinct: “The number of people drinking and driving is on the rise as the domestic epidemic slows down and various drinking places are gradually opened. Plus, it's the winter season and many people will eat sesame oil chicken and other supplements. Rice wine is often added to this kind of food to enhance the flavor.”

The increase in drunk driving is related to winter's arrival and the slowing of the domestic epidemic. Kaohsiung Police will be setting up sobriety tests for nine consecutive days starting from the early morning of the 14th. Kaohsiung has recorded 257 drunk driving cases in the four days from Nov. 12 to 16. 

 

 

倒入米酒,點火讓酒精揮發。冬天到了,麻油、燒酒雞甚至是薑母鴨都是進補的食物,也常加米酒,讓民眾不慎吃完酒精超標。像高雄這名男子,16日騎摩托車經過美濃區這路口時搶黃燈,員警攔下,發現酒測值超標達到0.46。但男子喊冤說沒喝酒,只是前一天晚上,喝了麻油雞補湯。

員警詢問涉嫌酒駕男子:「你是加米酒而已嗎?」

男子回「對呀」,員警又問「你是喝幾杯」,男子回:「喝兩三杯就這樣了」。

男子回想,補湯內加了2瓶米酒,最後因酒駕被移送法辦。旗山分局統計,光是16日、17日這2天,轄區內已經取締7件酒駕。11月初到現在已經取締31件,跟去年同期18件比起來,增加了13件。

高市旗山分局美濃分駐所長洪子棠指出,「隨著國內疫情的趨緩,各類飲酒場所逐步解封,加上進補時節,許多民眾都會相約吃麻油雞(等補品)。(這類)食物經常會加入米酒來提味,民眾的酒駕件數也有增高的趨勢。」

酒駕人數增多,警方研判跟冬天到了,還有國內疫情趨緩有關。市警局從14日凌晨開始 ,將連續9天專案取締酒駕及危險駕駛,而在11/12到11/16這四天,全高雄已取締257件酒駕。
