Crime and insecurity
Fortunately, the crime rates of Taiwan are among the lowest in
the world. Graffiti is almost absent in Chinese society and vandalism
is very low. Furthermore, accomplishments such as the acknowledgement
of construction deficiencies and appointment of an advisory commission
on new guidelines for the planning and design of the metro system
are noteworthy. Hopefully, this initiative will bring on the long-awaited
turning point and lead to higher construction quality and improved
public safety situation within the MRTS.
