The Taipei City Government has begun providing clearer and higher-resolution photographs of traffic violations in the city, becoming the first in the nation to provide such a service, the Taipei City Police Department said yesterday.
The Traffic Division said in a statement that motorists who received a ticket dating back to January last year, such as for speeding or running a red light, can now view the photograph that was part of the ticket on a dedicated Web site.
The photos, which can be used for personal reference or to appeal a fine, would remain online for three years from the date the ticket was issued, it said.
The new practice addresses a problem that has existed since 2015, when motor vehicle authorities began issuing traffic fines with a photo of the violation printed directly on the ticket.
