2 High School Students Posing as TRA Trainee Drivers 高中生穿台鐵制服欲闖駕駛室 謊稱見習

Two high school students in central Taiwan recently tried to perform a con by posing as Taiwan Railways Administration trainee drivers to ask for free train rides. The train conductor caught them and the TRA has submitted a letter to their school requesting discipline for misconduct. 


Train drivers are essential for safe passenger rides. It has recently been reported in Taoyuan that two high school students posed as Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) trainee drivers to ask for free train rides. They almost made it into the cab even.

Resident nearby school: “This is not proper behavior. ( Reporter: “Do you think it's crazy?”) Yeah it's pretty crazy.”

Resident nearby school: “So pointless. Teenagers just like to have fun.”

Investigation from the TRA revealed that these two high school students, fully dressed in TRA train driver uniforms, got onto the train at Ershui station on the 16th. The two explained that they were trainee drivers from TRA's Kaohsiung locomotive depot and asked for a ride to Changhua station. Their plans went sour after being guided to the outer pathway to the cab. The train conductor soon realized it was a con while conversing with the two "trainee drivers" since they could not offer any more details about anything.

Mr. Hung, Division director, Ching-hua High school: “Current school activities do not seem to fulfill their curiosities, so they probably wanted a real-life experience.”

One of the students is from Ching-hua High School in Taoyuan. Ching-hua is known for specialized courses on rail transport and there are many TRA train cars on display on the campus. School officials say they will further work on disciplining students and a penalty will be given for misconduct. TRA said they chose not to report to the police and instead submitted a formal letter to the school asking for proper discipline. 

 

 

 

火車一如往常行駛,安全要靠司機員把關,但桃園卻有民眾假冒台鐵見習司機員,不僅要求搭便車,還差點闖進駕駛室內。經過台鐵調查,發現這兩人身分還只是高中生。

學校附近民眾表示,這樣是不對的行為,而且滿瘋狂的。另位也有民眾認為太無聊,覺得「年輕人就是愛玩」。

事發在16日,兩名高中生穿著全套台鐵司機制服,拖著行李,謊稱是高雄機務段見習司機員,要搭便車,從二水前往彰化,被引導到駕駛室外側通道後,列車長發現,兩人對詢問細節一問三不知,才當場拆穿騙局。

桃園市私立清華高中洪主任表示:「學校的相關課程裡面所做的規劃,還滿足不了學生的好奇心,所以他在假日的時候,去想說可不可經過這樣子看一下,他想要去了解說現在(實際)的部分。」

其中一人,經過調查,是桃園私立清華高中學生,這所高中鎖定「軌道運輸」相關科系,特色招生,校園更擺放,台鐵提供的多輛列車。這回學生因為好奇心釀禍,校方表示會加強法治教育,並開會決定後續懲處。台鐵則回應,沒有報警處理,已經正式行文學校,加強約束學生在外行為。
