3,403 Violations Caught on County Road 139|彰化139縣道超速違規多 半年取締3400件

Speeding often occurs on the County Road 139 at Baguashan in Changhua County. Last year, it caused many fatal accidents and speed cameras were set up around the 21km mark in hopes to reduce speeding. However, there have been over 3000 cases of speeding violations at this particular area in the past six months. To prevent further speeding, the police is now planning to enforce the speed-measuring zone at high-risk areas.

Over the past six months, police have issued 3,403 speeding tickets along the County Road 139 at Baguashan in Changua. Local residents were supportive of the police's plan to enforce the speed-measuring zone to nab speeders.

Once you are past the speed camera, it's the same on the left or right, everybody speeds. I feel this is quite dangerous. Sometimes the ambulance will come once or two times per week.

I think you should just abide the law and ride slowly, as long as you don't speed, you will not be scared.

Car accidents often occur on Changhua's County Road 139 due to speeding. Although a Fixed Speed-Measuring Apparatus was set up at the 21 kilometers mark on the road last October, but speeding violations remain frequent. The police hence decided to change the format into a speed-measuring zone with a limited speed instead. They hope that this will change the driver's habit of slowing down only when they pass the speed camera.

Using a fixed point speed-measuring apparatus, people would feel that it's just one point where speeding will be caught. We currently hope to stretch this "point" into a whole "section" on the road to manage the speeding issue.

The police said that the current plan is to set up a 4-kilometer zone between the 19 kilometers mark and the 23 kilometers mark on the County Road, where it has many turns and has a high accident rate. The speed limit will still be set at 50 km/h, which means that if a car takes more than 4 minutes to cross, it will not receive a speeding ticket. The police remind the public to drive within speed limits to prevent receiving a ticket.

警方拿出一疊一疊厚厚的罰單,這些全部都是在同一地點取締的超速違規,超速的地點就在彰化縣八卦山上的139縣道,光是近半年來,就取締了3,403件,警方規劃再增加區間測速來遏止超速,民眾都很支持。

民眾表示:「過這個測速器左右都一樣,大家都過了以後就超過去了,是覺得這樣比較危險,有時候救護車一個禮拜來了一、兩次。」

民眾表示:「我覺得只要守法,慢慢騎都可以,不要超速就好,就不會怕。」

彰化139縣道常因為汽機車超速而發生車禍,雖然在去年10月已經在21公里處設置超速照相桿,不過超速的狀況還是一樣嚴重,所以警方現在希望能把單點的測速,改變為整路段的速度限制,希望讓民眾不是看到測速照相機才會減速。

彰化縣警局交通隊二組組長 汪振豪表示:「以固定式的這個測速照相桿,那畢竟民眾對於這個取締,他只是一個點的一個,測速照相取締的這個違規,那我們目前是希望說,能夠把這個點拉成一整個路段,做這個速度管理的規劃。」

警方表示,目前規畫區間測速的路段,將從19K到23K處的多彎道、易肇事的4公里間,速度一樣限制在50公里,警方換算後,未來這個區間若行車時間超過4分鐘,就不會收到罰單,提醒民眾還是要遵守速限,才不會受罰。
