Traffic!!!! We have killer traffic in Kaohsiung. When you cross the street, PLEASE make sure you check every angle before you step out. People only obey the traffic regulations when the cops are standing at the corner, which is around the rush hour.

Walking can be hazardous to your health even on the "sidewalks" in front of stores. Step-ups and step-downs are typical. If you choose the scooter parking egress area between the street and store fronts DON'T make any sudden moves left or right without looking ahead and behind. Crossing at lights, delay a couple seconds to spot light runners. Even then cross with your "head on a swivel".
Your must be very alert when walking, the scooters that exist in the thousands also use the sidewalks to drive and park. Auto traffic is also bad, running red lights is common.
A subway being built may help but it will not be finished until 2007.
Traffic congestion is a problem in the city, while air and water quality in and around Kaohsiung has been ranked as Taiwan's worst..
There are thousands of scooters that seem unregulated as to traffic rules. They drive wherever they like and on sidewalks . Anywhere.
