One-fourth of Drunk Drivers Drive Without a License 酒駕累犯公布照片姓名 竟1/4無照駕駛

According to statistics, 89 of 352 repeat drunk drivers were driving without a license. Therefore, social groups are calling on the government for harsher pentalties.


A two-door sports car ignored the intersection control and collided with an on-site engineer at high speed. The engineer stopped breathing on the spot and was sent to the hospital. The fatal car accident in took place in New Taipei City's Tamshui District in June this year. The woman surnamed Lin, who was suspected of driving under the influence was charged by the prosecutor on the 10th with public danger.

Chang Yun-wei, Chief Prosecutor, Shilin District Prosecutors Office: “Her blood alcohol content was as high as 0.77 recorded by the police at the scene. Lin confessed to the crime. Combined with testimony from eyewitnesses, the prosecutor ended and charged her with public endangerment.”

This is the third time that Lin has been caught drinking and driving. Additionally, she was driving without a license. The new law on drunk driving came online at the end of March this year. According to statistics, 89 of the 352 repeat drunk drivers were driving without a license.

Kao Shu-chen, Secretary-General, Taiwan Against Drunk Driving Association: “Usually, the first time you drink and drive, you have your license suspended or revoked. But fines for driving without a license aren't enough don't stop them from drinking.”

The proportion of drunk driving without a license is high. Social groups who have long been concerned about the issue of drunk driving even said that the punishment for driving without a license is too light, which is a major reason. Medical and judicial interventions are necessary to treat people with alcohol addiction. 

 

 

 

不顧路口管制,一輛雙門跑車高速行駛,撞上現場一名工程人員,對方當場沒了呼吸心跳,送醫回天乏術,這是發生在今年6月,新北市淡水的一起死亡車禍,涉嫌酒駕的林姓女子,昨(10)日被檢方依涉犯公共危險罪嫌起訴。

士林地檢署襄閱主任檢察官張紜瑋表示:「經警方到場處理,測得她酒測值是高達0.77(毫克),林姓女子她是有坦承犯行,那再加上又有當時目擊證人的證述,那事證明確,所以檢察官在偵查後偵查終結,對她提起公訴。」

涉案的林姓駕駛,酒駕行為一再發生,這已經是她第3度酒後上路被抓包,不只是酒駕累犯,還被發現根本無駕照。只見今年3月底,酒駕新法已經上路,根據統計,全國公布的352名酒駕累犯名單,無照駕駛高達89位,等於每4名酒駕累犯就有1人沒有駕照。

台灣酒駕防制社會關懷協會秘書長高淑真指出:「通常在第一次酒駕的時候,很多就已經被吊扣或吊銷駕照了,但是他們的飲酒行為還是沒有得到改善的話,無照的罰金對他來講不足以影響。」

無照酒駕比例高,長期關心酒駕議題的民團更表示,無照駕駛罰則過輕是一大原因,除了建議重罰外,為了遏止酒駕,警方也要加強取締,針對有酒精成癮的累犯也要透過醫療和司法,介入治療。
