<Anchor> A

male and female junior high school student had an accident hitting a passerby while drinking and riding an electric kickboard together.

Police said the electric kickboard would be severely punished for hitting people, drinking alcohol or hitting and hitting people in India.

Reporter Jeong Ban-seok's report.


On the afternoon of the 21st, a male and female middle school student on an electric kickboard in an alley in Seocho-gu, Seoul, hit a high school student walking down the street.

The student who bumped was not seriously injured, but the middle school student who drove the kickboard was charged with drunk driving because the blood alcohol concentration was confirmed to be the level of license suspension.

The driver did not have a license and did not follow safety rules such as wearing safety equipment and prohibiting two passengers.

Even now, it is easy to see riding on one kickboard without wearing safety equipment in various places in the city, but the police said they would severely punish the electric kickboard accident.

In India, if a pedestrian collides with a pedestrian and inflicts human damage, it is considered as a 12 serious traffic accident, and will be punished with imprisonment for up to 5 years regardless of whether or not agreed, and aggravated punishment will be given to drinking alcohol, hit-and-run accidents, or hitting a child in the school zone.

It is not a new punishment rule, but it is to apply the rules that have been applied to existing bicycles.

[Ho-Geun Lee/Professor, Department of Automobile at Daedeok University: Even in the event of a hit-and-run accident, it is difficult to find violators because there is no license plate, and the punishment regulations for illegal modifications or speeding are not clear. .] The

number of accidents and injuries of personal vehicles including kickboards has nearly quadrupled in the last three years, and measures to prevent accidents should be prepared as soon as possible with the deregulation of related regulations next month.
