[Reporter Zheng Weiqi/Taipei Report] Traffic accidents in Taiwan kill nearly 3,000 people every year, and more than 60% of them are motorcycle riders. According to statistics from the Highway Administration of the Ministry of Communications, the violation rate of motorcycle riders in the first year after obtaining a driver's license is 1 year after obtaining a driver's license. After about 4 times.
In this regard, the Ministry of Communications is planning to introduce a corrective education mechanism for novice drivers (within one year of obtaining a driver's license) who have high-risk violations, so that those who have specific violations (such as running a red light, failing to stop for pedestrians), and the number of violations reach a certain standard, You must attend a 3-hour Daoan seminar at your own expense.
According to statistics from the General Administration of Highways, the average violation rate of motorcycle drivers who have obtained a driver's license for one year is about 10%. After one year of obtaining a driver's license, the average violation rate drops to about 2.5%. The violation rate for car drivers is relatively stable, at about 2%. up and down.
The company is currently planning to promote a corrective education mechanism for high-risk violators. The preliminary research includes the number of violations that need to be recorded as violation points within one year (such as running a red light, snaking, driving, speeding, and turning illegally), and Once a specific illegal item is violated, it is necessary to participate in two aspects such as the road security lecture for research.

The company pointed out that although there is a current regulation that the driver’s license will be suspended if the 6 points of violation points are recorded within half a year, but the points will be cleared after half a year, so driving will be less likely to be suspended; the novice driver correction education mechanism is planned , is to use the number of violations as the basis for calculation. If there are 2 violations and 1 point, you must participate in the road safety lecture; in addition, if you violate a specific traffic violation once (maybe running a red light and failing to stop for pedestrians), you must participate in the road safety lecture. An lecture, the relevant details are still being planned and will be reported to the Ministry of Communications in the near future.
Chen Wenrui, director of the General Administration of Highways, said that the most important thing to study and discuss the novice driving education and correction mechanism is to improve driving safety and reduce the risk of accidents. After all, the high violation rate of driving may increase the probability of accidents; Safety lectures are currently being discussed with the Road Safety Committee of the Ministry of Communications.
In addition to the corrective measures of road safety lectures, the Ministry of Communications has also studied the feasibility of improving penalties for specific violations of novice drivers.
Lin Fushan, Director of Road Administration of the Ministry of Communications, said that the current regulations are able to formulate different penalty standards for different violations and different actors, and there is no consensus on raising fines for some items of novice drivers.
