Strange, nobody seems to have mentioned this so far, but a number of articles
indicate that finally signs of sanity are showing in Taiwan's traffic legislation. Yellow plates (after years of being restricted to the same rights as white plates despite needing the same license as red plates - or in other words, having less rights than bicycles) are finally upgraded and allowed to access certain speedways, turn left directly and use car lanes.
At the same time, there is word that red plates may get access to the freeway, but it seems only No 6 and No 8 and only on weekends
, because this is something that has never been tried on this planet, so Taiwan needs to make a series of controlled tests first. (for six months the ministerial traffic experts say)
Btw, for someone who is probably not riding any kind of bike herself, especially a larger one, Ye Yijing is asking pretty good questions. (second video)
Another btw: This makes me think... One condition for red plates getting access to car lanes and speedways was that they are required to have an ugly front plate. When yellow plates get the same rights - will they need to do that too or are red plates finally relieved of that requirement? Or am I expecting too much sanity at once?
