Taipei, Nov. 29 (CNA) People who stop their cars on yellow lines for the purpose of picking up or dropping off children under the age of seven will no longer be restricted to three minutes of stopping time, according to a new traffic rule that will take effect on Dec. 1. The Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act currently stipulates that drivers who park on a yellow line for more than three minutes will face a maximum fine of NT$600 (US$20.8), the only exception being if they are doing so to allow people with disability to get in and out of vehicles. The Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MOTC) announced in June an amendment to the act to expand such exceptions to people who are picking up or dropping off children aged under seven, which comes into effect Dec. 1. The three-minute-rule, however, only applies to picking up and dropping off and does not include waiting time. Stopping on a red line to pick up or drop off a young child, meanwhile, is still not allowed, although leniency might apply if the practice does not hinder the flow of traffic, according to to the MOTC.
