Traffic Rules

👮‍♀️ Tips for Riding a Scooter in Taiwan!

1. According to Taiwan's traffic light regulations, you cannot turn right, and you need to pay special attention to breaking the law.

2. When riding a motorcycle in Taiwan and turning left, most of the time need to do a hook turn, especially at intersections. By then, you will see a white square grid on the right ahead, which is the waiting area for the motorcycle. After that, you need to stop at the grid first. Wait for the traffic light to turn green, then go straight ahead to continue.

3. It is recommendable to change the battery/refuel before going up to the mountain as the popularity of battery stations/gas stations in the mountains in Taiwan is not so high.

4. When riding a motorcycle in Taiwan, if an accident occurs, please do not reconcile privately, ride away or move the vehicle. Please call your motorcycle rental store and ask them to assist with secure handling.

5. When riding a motorcycle in Taiwan, do not drive the motorcycle on expressways, highways, national highways, etc. It is not only illegal but also dangerous, and the national highway police will stop you!

6. Some roads have special regulations that ban motorcycles from driving in the inner lane while riding in Taiwan.

7. There are many small roads and alleys in Taiwan. It is recommended not to choose those routes, as it is easy to get lost. Recommendable for foreign tourists to choose the main road/big road for traveling.

8. There are speed cameras/technology enforcement spread widely in Taiwan. When you are riding a motorcycle, pay attention to your surroundings. Also, pay attention to violations and speeding to avoid being fined by technology law enforcement.

9. Always pay attention to the rearview mirror and keep a safe distance between the front and rear when riding a motorcycle in Taiwan. Especially when you need to make a turn as there are a lot of motorcycles on the roads in Taiwan, so you should pay more attention while driving for your safety.

10. The speed limit of Taiwan's slow lanes is 40km/h

11. Be careful on the outer road when riding a motorcycle in Taiwan. There are often roadside violations and temporary parking vehicles.

12. When using transportation in Taiwan, turning vehicles must first give way to going straight vehicles. Please keep this in mind.
