Taipei, Dec. 20 (CNA) Pregnant passengers or drivers will no longer be subject to the
high-occupancy vehicle policy on freeways in Taiwan, beginning Jan. 1, the Taiwan Area National Freeway Bureau said Tuesday.
According to the bureau, pregnant passengers or drivers will only need to produce their pregnancy booklet and personal identification to police officers in case there are checkpoints on an on-ramp.
The new rule will allow pregnant women to commute more comfortably on the freeway rather than the provincial highways, it said. [FULL STORY]
