A Reminder for Drivers and Pedestrians:

1. Traffic police will strengthen efforts to crack down on parking violations in the control zone around Taipei Stadium during this period.
2. Due to insufficient parking facilities in the area, those seeking to attend the ceremony are encouraged to take public transportation to the venue and avoid driving.
3. Traffic congestion in the vicinity of Taipei Stadium is highly likely as the event takes place on a weekday and the first day of school. Drivers should avoid the area by taking detours such as Guangfu S. Road, Fuxing S. Road, and Jianguo S. Road; vehicles traveling in the east-west direction should take Minsheng E. Road, Civic Boulevard, or Zhongxiao E. Road instead.
4. The scope of traffic control may be expanded depending on the level of traffic congestion and other factors. Drivers should follow the instructions of police officers and volunteer traffic police at roads and intersections.
