Woman Stands in Front of Bus and Refuses to Move 公車離站卻堅持上車 女雨中肉身擋車前

A 20-something woman surnamed Chen stood in front of a bus in the middle of a road and refused to move because the bus had already left the station and the driver refused to open the door to let her on. The police had to be called. The woman's action had violated the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act.


The light is green, but this bus is stopped at the intersection because a woman is standing in front of it and won't move. The bus driver calls the police.“This is a company regulation. You can't (get on) now.”

After a standoff of over 10 minutes, the police finally convince the woman to move. The incident occurred at 3 p.m. on the 3rd. The No. 89 bus, bound for downtown Taichung, had driven 10-plus meters from the Xiangshang-Dongxing Intersection bus stop when the woman chased it down and demanded to get on while it was stopped at a red light.

Citizen: “You have to time it. You can check the app.”

Lee Ming-gan, President of Bus Company: “The bus had already left the curb and was in the middle of the road. The driver can't stop in the middle of the road and open the doors to let passengers on and off. A driver that does this would get a demerit.”

The bus company says drivers are not allowed to let passengers on or off once a bus has left the curb. Police say the woman violated the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act and may be fined.

Chen Meng-bo, Deputy Chief, Gongyi Police Station: “The woman wanted the bus to stop, but didn't obstruct it from leaving. What she did didn't reach the level of a coercive offense.”

Although neither side is pressing charges, the woman faces a NT$300 fine for running on the road and obstructing traffic.

 

 

 

明明綠燈已經亮起,但這輛公車就停在路口,無法前進,原來是有一名女子在大雨中,站在公車前方阻擋公車前進,公車司機也報警,請警方到場。「這是他們公司規定,就跟你說,沒辦法(上車)了。」


警方將女子勸離,所幸沒有發生意外。3日下午3點多,這班往台中市區行駛的89號公車,來到東興向上路口這個站牌,已經離站關門往前開了10多公尺,這名女子在後方追趕,在公車停等紅燈時攔車,雙方僵持10多分鐘。

民眾表示:「(搭車)要去抓那個時間呀,因為都有APP可以看呀。」

客運總經理李銘淦說明:「因為他已經離站,而且車子行駛在車道上了,本來就不可以再開車門,讓客人上下車,這部分如果駕駛確實這樣的話,至少我們會做個小過以上的懲處。」

業者表示,為了安全考量,公車離站後不開放乘客上下車。警方表示,女子的行為也違反《道路交通管理處罰條例》,可依法開罰。

台中市公益派出所副所長陳孟伯表示:「就這件案件來看,她只是想要叫停公車,並沒有實際上讓公車沒辦法行駛,所以應該還不到強制罪的程度。」

警方表示,雖然雙方沒有提告,但在道路上奔跑或有阻礙交通的行為,可依法處以300元的罰鍰,如果引發交通事故,也會涉及刑責。
