Yehma club negligence costs NT$630,000 for injuries

Apple News article

Back in summer 2011 a Yehma club instructor surnamed Liu had a mid-air collision at Green Bay with another glider, resulting in a crash and multiple broken bones for his female passenger. Finally Ms. Lin had her day in court where she won NT$630,000 in damages for herself, the court having decided that Mr. Liu had acted negligently by launching into heavy traffic instead of waiting.
Green Bay is immensely popular as the closest flying site to Taipei, drawing huge crowds of spectators and willing tandem passengers on weekends. Accidents are frequent due to overcrowding and scant regard being paid to right-of-way rules.
