Taiwan Female Driver Suffers False Injury Accusation/Extortion, Her Screeches Frightening

A woman driver passing through Hualian encountered a man on a bicycle who stubbornly claims she had hit him and repeatedly tried to open her car door to get her to come out and argue. The female driver initially remained calm, indicating that she had an on-board video camera, but upon seeing the man insist on falsely accusing her, she eventually broke down and called her husband in tears begging him to come rescue her.

In the video, the man’s words are unintelligible but the woman driver says she didn’t hit him and that she has an on-board video camera. Later she can be heard calling her father (or possibly her child’s father, which would be her husband), saying she is outside their home, that someone on a bicycle hit her car, begging him to come out and help her. She quickly begins panicking/crying screaming for her father to hurry. Her father can be heard briefly on the phone asking where she is and she responds by just repeating “here, here, here, hurry!” As she is crying, a baby’s cries can also be heard.

Comments from Youku:


First blood is mine.


Why bother arguing, just slap him…


She’s lost it.


Fuck, just call the police or run him over.


This woman’s emotional constitution is too weak.


Whoever gets a wife like this will have to worry all the time. Isn’t she simply useless?

大莫幻空 (responding to above)

How about you talk after you find a wife first?


What a beautiful sound [or voice].


The guy in red is not bad [a good guy]


Are Taiwanese women all like this…?


I’m speechless…


How did this woman survive until adulthood? I’m speechless, this is too fragile/pathetic.

It’s normal for a woman to be afraid when encountering a crazy person blocking her trying to open her car door.


Why not just refuse to open the door and call the police? You already have a camera, there’s no reason to be afraid.


How come no one has said anything about the guy falsely extorting her? There’s even an infant in the car. Do you people think every woman’s emotional constitution is so strong? Not immediately giving money and knowing to call her husband for help is already quite good. I’m truly speechless with people these days.


This woman’s voice is really unpleasant.


Why [are the comments] biased towards making fun of the victim female driver?

侣行吗 (responding to above)

Is this woman still a child?


When encountering this kind of person, just run them over.


So this kind of false false injury accusation/extortion is actually an international profession. The entire world should unite in fighting this kind of terrorism. Death penalty without exception [for such scams].


Looking at the comments make me want to vomit. Don’t you know the girl is frightened into tears? This may be the first time this girl has encountered a person like this. Did you not see the part where her father runs over? The girl’s screams even make me worried. Not everyone are so strong like you guys. I don’t want to make fun of/complain about society.


Honestly, what’s wrong with this society? The one who should be complained about isn’t complained about, while the one who shouldn’t be complained about has spit all over her face.


→_→ Just call the police…


The driver’s voice is so cute! Do all Taiwanese people talk like this?


I want to beat up the guy.


False injury scammers/extorters are the worst.


I can only say how useless women like this are.


Come on, this woman has too little guts. If it were where I am, people would just immediately start arguing and fighting.

偶像梦恋 (responding to above)

If it were my older sister, she would’ve already scratched up the other person’s face.


There’s a baby in the car that is also screaming. This woman’s ability to handle problems is not the least bit like a mother, nor does she demonstrate an awareness of protecting [looking after] her infant.

This woman is a child.


When the law is not strict, this kind of cunts become more and more.


Our countrymen’s values are so distorted that they can no longer distinguish right from wrong, unbelievably all finding fault with the victim. Are all those commenting the friends and family of the false injury scammer/extortionist? Either that or stupid diaosi who can’t afford a car and are thus saying sour grapes.


…is he [the guy in red who comes out] saying “ni xiang zen yang?!!!!!! [“what are you trying to do”, a phrase/challenge Taiwanese people are stereotyped as often saying during arguments]



Yikes, this voice can kill a person. However, false injury scammers/extortionists are all bastards! The law should expressing stipulate that those proven to be false injury scammers be given strict punishments.


This video shows just how important it is to have an on-board video camera!


A bunch of “men” see a weak woman being bullied and still talk shit about her. Each and every one of them boasting/talking glib, but if it happened to them, they too would be pissing their pants scared. Truly disgusting!


Retard, only know how to cry, doesn’t know how to call the police.


You have an on-board camera, so what are you afraid of? Just call the police!


Distortion of the truth. This woman was driving on the bicycle lane and the old man in the video is deaf and dumb, just criticizing this woman for it, and not a false injury scammer.


The law needs to be changed, so that when encountering a false injury scammer and there is surveillance footage as evidence, one doesn’t have to bear any responsibility for running them over.


Turns out Taiwan also has a False Injury Scammer Party… Here where we are, people wouldn’t waste their breath and immediately go up and beat him up, to teach him a lesson.


[Her] ability to deal with a situation is too weak. She doesn’t even say where she is and just keeps screaming for [her husband] to hurry and come.


If this was a robbery or some such, she could call the police and still be unable to clearly communicate, simply waiting to be slaughtered. So girls, you need to stay calm. When making the call, first say where you are instead of all that useless/unnecessary stuff. Otherwise the people who want to help won’t even know where to go help you.


The bicyclist is deaf and dumb. The woman driver was driving on the non-motor vehicle lane. Perhaps the bicyclist was just trying to tell her not to drive on that lane.


So many flamers, but this woman indeed too easily loses her calm.


Driving on the bicycle lane, so no wonder someone else [is stopping/criticizing her]


Did you not see that there’s a parking space to the side? Also, not long after she makes the call, her family member comes out, so obviously her home is nearby. What’s illegal about her driving on this lane in order to park her car on the right?


Those people who are flipping black and white criticizing the female driver, what is wrong with you? Did you not hear the girl repeatedly saying she has an on-board video camera? Why would she say this if [the bicyclist] was only chastising her [for driving on the bicycle lane]? Also, that guy keeps saying things, so how could he be mute? Did no one hear him speaking at the beginning? Even if you can’t hear clearly what he said at the beginning, in the end, you should see him arguing with that long-haired guy, right? Also, at the beginning, did you not hear him hitting the car window? If this isn’t a false injury scammer, then what is he? Also, do you not see the cars parked on the side and the intersection ahead? This is obviously a residential area intersection. This girl driving so slowly was obviously to make a turn on her way home. And you guys accuse her of driving in the bicycle lane, what is wrong with you people inverting black and white? Are you accomplices of that false injury scammer? Or are you in the same profession?


The title is misleading people. Carefully review the video. The female driver was pulling over to park her car, driving on the bicycle lane, deviating from the car lane. The bicyclist had just come out and this startled the bicyclist. The middle-aged bicyclist parked in front of the girl’s car to verbally chastise her, pointing down to indicate that this is the bicycle lane. The middle-aged man wasn’t trying to scam her at all. When he walked to her window, all you can hear are him making sounds, so he’s probably deaf/mute. Unable to get through to her, he goes back and prepares to leave, but at this time, someone in the truck on the left says something, and the middle-aged man gestures to the person on the truck that the female driver was driving on the bicycle lane. This girl only knows to blindly cry, crying and screaming into the phone, probably because she’s been too spoiled/coddled. The guy that then comes over was at first furious, but after a bit of exchange, figures out the middle-aged man is deaf/mute, and calms down a bit!


Actually, the false injury scammer is seizing the circumstance of the driver driving in the bicycle lane, using it to create a false situation, to bully the innocent driver. Fortunately there was an on-board camera, because without it, it really would be a hassle. So drivers should first obey traffic rules and, second, call the police when encountering a similar situation.


The sound of her turning on the turn signal to park on the side can be heard, and it is obvious that there is a parking space ahead. The false injury scammer suddenly rushed forward and you can hear the man telling her to get out of the car, as well as continuously pulling on the car door. With someone this fierce, any woman would basically be frightened. Fortunately the car door was locked, but what if it wasn’t!? This isn’t a problem of her emotional character/constitution at all. If someone ran out and started pulling on your car door, would you not be afraid? Let alone her being a girl! Then her husband came out from their home ahead, representing this woman, asking what’s wrong with her parking in front of her own home? Did the bunch of idiots below [previous commenters] watch the video without the sound or are you really so idiotic that you can’t make sense of what happened?


This female driver saying “daddy” is referring to her child’s daddy (a habit of Taiwanese speech). With both reason and evidence on her side, in broad daylight, did she really need to act as if someone was being killed? She herself also knows she has a child in the car, so was she not afraid of [needlessly] scaring the child? Being afraid is understandable, but just lock the door, and call for “daddy” to come deal with the false injury scammer! Is it because she has too little guts or because she was too scared? Really, when something happens, you need to remain calm!


It seems like that guy is mute, and not like a false injury scammer, since he doesn’t fall down or throw down his bicycle. He’s trying to tell the woman driver that she shouldn’t be driving on the non-motor vehicle lane. The female driver panicked and thought he was saying she hit him and rushes to explain. (Women panic easily. If something happens while driving and someone behind then honks the horn, they become even more panicked. Then a tragedy involving a female driver mistaking the gas pedal as the brake pedal will once again occur.)


The female driver already said her home is right in front and she’s about to park. From this, we can tell the old man has been waiting there a long time, that he riding against traffic. Anyone with a brain would know this. When later it is said that there is a camera, he begins acting. Does it look like he’s just coming up to criticize when he’s so mean and is kicking the car door?
