Excluded from the "tiger's mouth" road. Even after that, to this day, pedestrians are still the most vulnerable group on Taiwan's roads. From a macro point phone database of view, the process of “kidnapping” this public space by motor vehicles such as cars is similar all over the world. After World War II, with Europe's entry into the automotive industry, the world has developed the daily movement patterns of the people of the country, from the original walking, cycling, horse-drawn carriage, and human-powered tricycles to private modern vehicles. This process reached its peak in the 1970s.
The urban traffic planning that is progressing at the same time - what three-lane and four-lane roads, what expressway expressways - is also designed for the large number of cars in the city, and the "modern", "novel", "efficiency" they symbolize.

Of course, the predecessors also paved the road, but the predecessors did not prohibit other types of vehicles from sharing the road with pedestrians.

Road, maintain the road, and then only give the car to go. As for other types of vehicles and pedestrians, although you all pay taxes obediently, sorry, the road is not for you. This incident is covered under the name of "road safety" on the surface, but in its heart it is the worship of the "God of Efficiency Mobility" in modern society
