Delivery Driver Causes Taiwan Railways Delay 外送員卡在平交道 區間車受延誤8分鐘

A food delivery driver was stuck at a rail crossing in Taoyuan. Luckily the train stopped in time, but over 800 passengers's schedules were affected.


A food delivery driver hears the alarm and stops his scooter. He is now stuck at the rail crossing. A railway worker reports this, and lifts the gate so the driver can back up. Area residents say this is a common occurrence.

Citizen: “It happens all the time. The alarm has sounded but the crossing gate hasn't come down yet and they hurry back. It happens all the time. We see it all the time.”

This particular incident happened on the 4th in Taoyuan's Puyi Borough. Taiwan Railways train 2243, which was carrying 800 passengers, was delayed eight minutes because of it.

Chiang Cheng-chu, Chief, Zhongli Railway Police Station: “Under Article 54 of the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act, such an act is subject to a fine of NT$15,000 to NT$90,000, the suspension of your license for one year, and mandatory traffic safety classes.”

Under Article 54 of the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act, drivers that continue to cross railroad tracks when the alarm is on or crossing gates are lowering, or that overtake other vehicles, make a U-turn, reverse or stop on railroad crossings will face a fine of NT$15,000 to NT$90,000 and have their license suspended for one year.

 

 

 

監視器畫面中,外送員聽到警鈴響把車停下,接著柵欄放下把他卡在平交道上。工作人員發現後通報列車,並抬起柵欄讓外送員後退。附近民眾說,常有警報響,柵欄還沒放下,機車騎士趕快退出來的情形。

民眾說:「很平常呀,因為他剛一過的時候一響,柵欄還沒有放嘛,響的時候,柵欄還不會放下來,就趕快退回來,很平常的事情,我們時常看到這樣的事。」

這起外送員闖越平交道事件,發生在4日桃園中壢區普義里平交道,導致台鐵2243車次區間車旅客約800人,受到延誤約8分鐘。

鐵路警察局台北分局中壢所長江正鉅表示:「依《道路交通管理處罰條例》第54條該款予以告發,處新台幣1萬5000元以上、9萬元以下,並吊扣駕照1年,接受交通安全講習。」

根據《道路交通管理處罰條例》第54條規定,當警鈴已響或柵欄開始放下仍強行闖越,或是在鐵路平交道超車、迴車、倒車、臨時停車,可處1萬5000元到9萬元以下罰款,並吊扣駕照一年。
