Starting from Dec. 7th, 2023, Pedestrian Scramble will be Implemented at the Intersection of “Jinxi St. and Ln. 53, Jinxi St." in Datong Dist. of Taipei City

    In order to maintain traffic safety, pedestrian scramble will be implemented at the intersection of “Jinxi St. and Ln. 53, Jinxi St." in Datong Dist. starting from Dec. 7th, 2023. Pedestrian scramble is implemented during the hours of "07:00-08:00, 12:00-12:30, and 16:00-18:00 on school days.”

    Considering that the aforementioned intersection is near Shuanglian Elementary School, there is a large flow of students and vehicles during the hours when students are heading to and getting out of school, and there is often interference between turning traffic and pedestrians crossing the road. Taking the safety of students' into consideration, after evaluation by the Taipei City Traffic Engineering Office, time-based pedestrian scramble will be implemented at this intersection so as to reduce conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles and to ensure pedestrian safety. The traffic signal settings will be adjusted in a timely manner based on operating conditions.

    In response to the implementation of the "pedestrian scramble" at this intersection, pedestrians and drivers are urged to follow the traffic signals when crossing this intersection. Pedestrians should also cross the intersection quickly so as to maintain safety.
