Advocacy groups staged flash mobs in several cities yesterday, calling on the government to ensure “pedestrians’ right of way” and to end the “living hell” pedestrians face in Taiwan.
Hundreds of participants, mostly dressed in black, holding open umbrellas, carnations and paper signs, marched for 10 minutes around intersections where fatal traffic accidents involving pedestrians have occurred.
The flash mobs took place in Taipei, New Taipei City, Taoyuan, Hsinchu City, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung. #
