    【Kaohsiung News】 The Kaohsiung City Road Safety Bulletin announced the death toll of 5 in Class A1 in February 2018, hitting a record low. Chen Ching-Fu, Director-General of the Transportation Bureau, indicated that the death toll of 5 in Class A1 in February hit the monthly record low over the years. The police visibility at key intersections and promotion of traffic safety could reduce the occurrence of accidents effectively. The Kaohsiung City Government called for the public to lead by personal example and create a safe and smooth traffic environment together.
    Last year (in 2017), Kaohsiung City reported the death toll of 137 in Class A1, a decrease of 27 (16.5%) compared with 2016 (164); for large vehicles, the death toll was 19 in Class A1, a decrease of 15 (44.1%) compared with 2016 (34), showing remarkable improvement in the occurrence of accidents.
    The Kaohsiung City Road Safety Bulletin has set three goals this year, including: (1) achieve the annual target death toll of 123 in Class A1 based on the minimum death toll in Class A1 in every month from 2015 to 2017; (2) achieve the death toll of 5 or less in a month or more in 2018; and (3) reduce the death toll to the annual target of 9, half of that in the last year, in Class A1 for large vehicles.
    The Kaohsiung City Government organized the Road Safety Bulletin on March 1. The Road Safety Bulletin reported the citywide death toll of 5 in Class A1 in February, hitting a record low. The Kaohsiung City Police Department indicated that all police forces in all jurisdictions attended to maintain traffic order at the Chinese New Year. With effective traffic guidance at each attraction, the promotion of traffic safety by the Police Broadcasting Service, and efforts made by each road safety team, the occurrence of accidents in Class A1 was reduced effectively in February. 
    The Kaohsiung City Road Safety Bulletin indicated that as of February 28, 2018, Kaohsiung City reported the death toll of 5 out of 5 cases, hitting a monthly record low over the years. This was credited to the enhanced police visibility and efforts made by each road safety team. The Kaohsiung City Road Safety Bulletin encouraged each team to make persistent efforts to achieve the target death toll of 123 or less in Class A1 throughout 2018 and the target death toll of 9 or less in Class A1 for large vehicles. Meanwhile, the Kaohsiung City Road Safety Bulletin also called for the public to lead by personal example and remind friends and family members of road safety and traffic rules for the purpose of creating a safe and smooth traffic environment together
