According to statistics from the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC), the number of people who died from drunk driving decreased by 20 percent in 2007. Cracking down on drunk driving will remain the ministry's topmost priority this year.

MOTC Minister Tsai Duei said that driving under the influence of alcohol is still the No. 1 cause of traffic accidents, adding that his ministry will continue working with the National Police Administration to reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes.

In recent months, several well-known entertainers have been caught driving while intoxicated(DWI). These incidents pinpoint the rampancy of drunk driving in Taiwan. Last year, a total of 576 people were killed due to DWI.

DWI has become a growing threat to life in Taiwan. One obvious reason is that car ownership has increased rapidly. Another is the fact that drinking heavily at parties has become a common way of life on the island.

The government has made repeated efforts to educate the public about the dangers of driving after drinking, but the appeals have apparently had little effect. Entertainers, whose behavior is often imitated by young people, should especially refrain from drinking and driving. The only way to prevent driving under the influence is to mete out stiffer penalties to violators.
