The private auto is ruining beautiful Taiwan

Sunset must be protected against bridge, artists say - Taipei Times: "Artists and writers yesterday called for the protection of the famous sunset at Tamsui River’s (淡水河) mouth as a piece of cultural heritage, while they protested against a planned bridge construction project."

Taipei Times:"Environmental groups yesterday hailed as an important victory a decision by the Taipei High Administrative Court rejecting an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report for the proposed Tamsui-Taipei expressway construction project in New Taipei City (新北市)."
All development is not the same. The private auto takes up too much room and should be discouraged. Car owners should have to pay based on the amount of space and resources consumed. Buses should be made gradually cheaper until free.
