NICK EICHER, HOST: Police in Taiwan responded to the scene of an accident earlier this month. The victim complained that an unidentified male suspect recklessly rammed into his Tesla.
The officers then questioned the male suspect and administered a breathalyzer.
The suspect passed the test.
But I think you’d expect that a five-year-old wasn’t drunk.
Yes, a five year old on a bike—that’s who crashed into the Tesla.
Police say their hands are tied: it’s standard operating procedure. All motorists and bicyclists have to submit to breathalyzers to check blood-alcohol levels after accidents.
But police officials in Taipei said in the future, officers will be able to use discretion when dealing with little tykes who crash their bikes.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
