TAIPEI--In view of repeated incidents involving swimmers who have ignored warning signs erected in the Kenting National Park of adverse sea conditions, park authorities have decided to slap fines of NT$3,000 (US$100) on violators, effective Friday.
The park's South Bay is a favorite place for many swimmers, but three people drowned there last year because they ignored red warning flags.
Kenting National Park Headquarters then wrote “swimming prohibited” on its warning flags, but several students from Feng Chia University in Taichung also ignored this warning recently, two of whom later died.
