The family of a 14-year-old boy who secretly owned a motorcycle has collected NT$250,000 (US$8,100.57) worth of traffic tickets as a result of the teenager riding without a license and breaking other traffic regulations for about six months, a city councilor said Sunday.
The 31 tickets were issued between May and October last year, after the teen bought a secondhand motorbike with money he had made from a part-time job, New Taipei Councilor Lin Kuo-chun (林國春) said.
The boy’s father did not find out about the tickets until Jan. 31 because they had been sent to the address on his official household registration, which is in Tainan, while he was actually living in New Taipei, according to a local media report.
The tickets, totaling NT$250,000, were for infractions that included from driving without a license, Lin said.
