Contracted tow pounds Min-1 Region and Min-2 Region will begin illegal parking towing on May 16, 2014; government-run Guotai Tow Pound will simultaneously start operations

Kaohsiung City has outsourced illegal parking towing practices to private operators. After five months of preparation, Min-1 Region (in charge of Yancheng, Cianjin, Sinsing, and Lingya Districts) and Min-2 Region (in charge of Cianjhen, Siaogang, and Fongshan Districts) Tow Pounds will officially begin operations on May 16, 2014. The publicly operated Guotai Tow Pound (formerly Fongshan Tow Pound) will also enforce illegal parking towing in Renwu, Niaosong, Daliao, and Linyuan Districts starting from May 16. Their goals are to mitigate illegal parking along the roads, reduce traffic accidents, and improve parking order, thereby ensuring the safety of citizens’ life and property.

According to the Transportation Bureau, Min-3 Region (in charge of Nanzih, Zuoying, Gushan, and Sanmin Districts), a contracted tow pound, has been operating and enforcing laws since March 1, 2014, with a focus on major illegal parking that receives most complaints from citizens. The statistics in March and April show that about 73% of towed vehicles illegally parked along roads marked with red lines and within 10 meters of an intersection, and about 82% of towed scooters illegally parked on sidewalks where parking is banned. Generally speaking, major illegal parking problems such as double parking, parking at intersections and on sidewalks have decreased, and the safety of pedestrians and vehicles as well as parking order have been improved.

Min-1 Region Tow Pound, which is about to begin operating on May 16, 2014, carries out towing in Yancheng, Cianjin, Sinsing, and Lingya Districts. These administrative districts except for Yancheng used to be included within the jurisdiction of the privately operated Eastern and Western Region Tow Pound. Min-2 Region Tow Pound covers Cianjhen, Siaogang, and Fongshan Districts. Cianjhen District formerly fell within the jurisdiction of the Eastern and Western Region Tow Pound.

The Transportation Bureau stressed that eight major towing tasks were outsourced pursuant to the supplementary Council resolutions and carried out in accordance with the standard towing procedures set forth in the Kaohsiung City Government’s Regulations Governing Towing and Custody of Violating Vehicles. Officers of the Traffic Police Corps under the Police Department will first confirm the fact of parking violation and issue a ticket. When towing is necessary, they will broadcast twice and then tow away vehicles if vehicle owners still fail to show up.

The former government-run Fongshan Tow Pound continues its operations and has been renamed Guotai Tow Pound. Its jurisdiction has changed to Renwu, Niaosong, Daliao, and Linyuan Districts. The Transportation Bureau explained that local residents often reported parking violations that need to be immediately removed at train stations, MRT stations, bus stops, their doorways, or intersections. However, due to the lack of tow pounds in the past, police officers had to issue tickets without being able to remove the obstacles right away. Thus, these districts are included within the jurisdiction of the government-run tow pound. The publicly operated Sianjheng Tow Pound will be abolished as its transient missions have been completed and contracted tow pounds will start operations.
