Taiwan: Rules of Driving

I believe that foreign people who are driving in Taiwan will agree with me:

1- In northern part of Taiwan: signals are for indication purpose only

2- In southern part of Taiwan: signals are for city architecture and decoration purposes only

General rules in Taiwan”

3- Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right.

4- Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as suggestions, and are apparently not enforceable during rush hour… and other hours

5- Always slow down and rubberneck when you see an accident, or even if someone is just changing a tire

6- Throwing litter on the roads adds color to the landscape and gives Adopt-a-Highway crews something to clean up

7- Remember that the goal of every good driver is to get there first, by whatever means necessary

  1. Any way no one going to follow, then whats the use?????? Here too many rules are present, so what????

  2. The use Shiva? To provide sources for jokes 🙂
    I think in India, you have the same problem…

  3. “I think in India, you have the same problem”. Ya offcourse why not?? Most of the countries are having it….. No exceptional cases.. right?

  4. Most of the countries Shiva? Don’t think so, according my personal experience.

  5. After 8 years of riding a scooter in Kaohsiung I am pleased to still be intact.

    My peripheral vision has most definitely improved, and I have developed a STRONG distrust for green lights. I have the habit of slowing down and doing a complete scan before even entering an intersection, this has saved my butt numerous times.

    There are some advantages though, if i am late for work it is good to know that those red lights really don’t have much meaning.
