Rare snowfall forces Taiwan to include snow-related questions in driver’s license test

Starting June 1, people taking the driver’s license test in Taiwan will be required to answer questions about driving safety in snowy conditions, the Directorate General of Highways said Thursday.

The decision to ask such questions was made after a rare snowfall at lower elevations in Taiwan in January caused problems on icy roads, resulting in at least two deaths, authorities said

In January, Taiwan was hit by a record cold snap that brought snow not just to the high mountains but also to lower elevations where snow is rarely seen.

  1. Now this is “Totally” rare as in [EXTREMELY] rare !

    So rare that I have to see proof of this !!

    Taiwan is in the Tropics, I have “Never” seen/heard of this, and I am a Amateur Meteorologist !

    Remember, trust only 50% of what you see and virtually nothing that you hear !

    Separate yourself from the nut jobs, “primarily” located on your “left” side ? ! !

    • Here`s the video – “historic cold snap hammers East Asia”.
      Part of the video covers Taiwan. Although it covers the snow which fell on high ground, snow was recorded on low ground – pictures can be gleaned from the net.
