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.
