We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:
It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.
Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.
While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.
While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.
lol @ the "管他的".
Also the Taiwanese dude must have been really focused on the viewfinder to spot the guy zooming in on the plate.

best way is to upload the video as UNLISTED and send it to the police/ health authority .
or if u feel nasty, list it and send it to apple.

It was those Dork's right to film the guy breaking the law, and I guess it is local guys right to ask them to stop. The local guy was polite and those dorks used profanity and other things that you can't use to win an argument. I wanted to grab that pony tail give him a knuckle sandwich.
Now look at the law. Taiwan has a lot of crazy laws but for the most part they are enforced by common sense. Who was the driver hurting by driving up on the sidewalk. I did not see it crowed in the video? He was not speeding.
When my 4 kids were small and not able to walk far, I would have to pick up an order of books or let's say drop the kids and the wife off at a shop then go on a hunt for a parking space somewhere in the same district I would sometimes pull my car up where I shouldn't have.
When I was about to be busted a couple times the cop would take one look at my situation, say hello to the crying kids and walk away.
And even worse. I am programmed to obey the law, sometimes while hesitating, because I saw a cop, the cop would look at me like I was a dork for not pulling up there and allowed me to make my drop off. Laws are flexible. They should be enforced with reason. However, that guy needs a date with a lawn mower....... Someone post it to the TV station. There can't be that many guys walking around with that kind of hair and filming infractions.
