Resident Complains About White Curb Turning Red 桃園網友投訴 車停白線.取車變紅線被開單

A Taoyuan resident parked her vehicle next to a white curb. After returning, she discovered the white curb marking had become red, and there was an parking ticket on the car. The city offered an explanation.


Two pieces of the white line can be seen under the red. A Taoyuan resident recently posted a rant on Facebook along with photos of her parked vehicle. She complained that the curb marking was white when she parked the car, but had turned red by the time she was ready to drive away. She also received a ticket for illegal parking. She accused the city government of grubbing money.

Ms. Chen, Resident: “When I went to drive away, I found to my surprise that the entire curb marking had turned red. There were also traffic cones and the lines under our tires were white. Are they allowed to draw red lines like this?”

Resident: “The road became narrower, so I think it's reasonable (to draw red lines). You'll obstruct traffic if you park slightly out a little. However, if I got a ticket, I would be upset and I would complain. ”

The city's Department of Water Resources explained that a sewer construction project was taking place along that stretch of road, and it applied to temporarily change curb markings to red to ensure traffic safety around the construction zone. The white markings will be restored once the work is completed. It asked residents to be understanding.

Yeh Chia-chi, Section Director, Dept. of Water Resources, Taoyuan City: “The number of traffic lanes will be reduced while the construction work is taking place, so we marked red lines next to the workers to prevent vehicles from parking temporarily and improve road safety.”

Li Shun-cheng, Deputy Captain, Xingguo Police Station: “The police station received a complaint from a member of the public via 110, and the police took photos in accordance with Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act and wrote up a traffic violation ticket. The police officers found that there were doubtful points, so they switched to persuasion and did not issue the traffic ticket.”

The police said after it received a call about the parking violation, it found that there were doubtful points about the markings and it only issued a parking ticket and not a traffic ticket.

 

 

 

紅線上留有2小塊舊有的白線痕跡,一名網友在臉書社群上發出自己的停車照,抱怨停車時明明是白線,要開車時發現變成紅線,還被開了一張違規停車單,批評政府搶錢。

當事人陳小姐說:「我要去開車就發現奇怪,怎麼整條路都變紅線,然後有三角錐,我們輪胎底下就是有一些白色的線,畫紅線是可以這樣子畫的嗎?」

民眾說:「它道路變小了,我覺得(畫紅線)合理呀,不然再停出來一點會阻礙到交通。如果我被開單,我還是會心情不好,還是會去申訴。」

水務局表示,位在中壢區新生路二段正在進行汙水下水道興建工程,為了工區旁行車安全,向交通局申請臨時變更標線為紅實線,施工完成後會再將白線恢復,造成不便請民眾見諒。

桃市水務局污水促參科長葉佳錦表示:「施工時會造成車道縮減,所以在工作井旁邊畫設紅線,禁止車輛臨停,以增加用路人安全。」

中壢分局興國所副所長李舜程表示:「派出所接獲民眾110報案檢舉,警方依據《道路交通管理處罰條例》照相,並開立逕行舉發單,員警發現標線劃設有疑慮,故改以勸導方式為主,並未舉發。」

針對當事人反應,停的時候是白線,事後才畫紅線卻要吞違規罰單,並不合理一事。中壢分局表示,員警接獲違停檢舉電話,發現標線劃設有疑慮,只是開白單勸導,實際並未開紅單舉發。
