Kaohsiung Reports Another DUI Accident 高雄再傳酒駕撞人 躲臨檢撞車及檳榔攤

Another drunk driving incident took place in Renwu District. A man surnamed Wu hit an oncoming car and motorcycle before crashing into a betel nut stall and home. The female motorcyclist and stall attendant were sent to the hospital.
 


A crane was dispatched to tow away the white car stuck between the betel nut stall and the residential house. The road was full of the vehicle's debris. Fire trucks were also on standby. The driver hit the opposing motorcycle and car before hitting the stall and the home's gas pipeline, causing a gas leak. The police discovered the driver was drunk driving.

Feng Chia-chin, Deputy Chief, Chengguan Police Station, Kaohsiung: “The driver tried to escape when he saw the police checkpoint. He tried to evade a motorcycle before colliding and then crashing into the store, causing a gas leak.”

DUI checkpoints were set up on the evening of the 28th in Renwu District where drinking is prone to take place. A man surnamed Wu saw the checkpoint and fled, injuring the betel nut stall clerk and motorcyclist, sending them to the hospital. Fortunately, none were seriously injured. Wu's blood-alcohol level was 0.52 and slapped with endangering public crime.

Hsu Ju-chiao, Deputy Director, Renwu Precinct, Kaohsiung: “The entire case was transferred to Ciaotou District Prosecutors Office for investigation based on public danger crimes because his blood alcohol level exceeded the legal limit.”

A family of four was hit by a man on the 26th, who was a repeat DUI offender, resulting in one dead and three injured. Kaohsiung is implementing sobriety checkpoints from the 27th to January 3 next year. However, Taichung started its checkpoints on December 1, which will last for three months.

Chen Sung-yin, Commander, Traffic Div., Taichung Police Dept.: “We will carry out the drunk driving prevention project for three months, from December 1 to February 28 next year, lasting through the Lunar New Year Festival.”

Taichung is expected to assign more than 40,000 police officers to help ban drunk driving. 608 DUI cases have already been recorded from the beginning of December to the 27th. 327 cases have been transferred to prosecutors. 
 

 

 

 

出動吊車,將卡在檳榔攤與民宅間的白車拖走,路上滿是車輛碎片,一旁也有消防車待命,因為肇事駕駛先撞擊對向摩托車、汽車後,再衝撞檳榔攤與民宅瓦斯管線,一度造成氣體外洩,警方攔下肇事駕駛後發現,又是酒駕。

高雄仁武澄觀派出所副所長馮佳欽說:「見警方攔檢心虛,加速逃逸,閃避一輛機車,擦撞之後,又追撞到對方(向)的店家,致使瓦斯外洩。」

28日晚間仁武針對轄區內易飲酒場所取締酒駕,吳姓男子駕駛的小客車看到警察心虛駛離,造成檳榔攤店員、摩托車騎士受傷送醫,幸好沒有大礙,吳姓男子酒測值0.52,以涉犯公共危險罪移送。

高雄仁武副分局長徐如姣表示:「因酒測值超過標準值,全案依公共危險罪移送橋頭地檢署偵辦。」

這個月26日才發生一家四口被酒駕男子撞擊,1死3傷,高雄從27日到明年1月3日,8天全市酒駕大執法,不過台中從12月1日就開始執行,為期三個月掃除酒駕。

中市交警大隊大隊長陳松寅提到:「12月1日起至111年2月28日農曆年節期間執行掃除罪犯專案,為期三個月。」

台中預計投入4萬多名警力取締酒駕,從月初到27日已取締608件,移送法辦者327件。
