TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Breaking News Commune (爆料公社) member Jeff Su posted an image of a car designed to look like the Marvel Comics superhero Iron Man driving on the road in Kaohsiung City on May 16.
The whimsical looking car is the campaign vehicle from the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator Chao Tien-lin (趙天麟), who is using the car to drum up support for the Kaohsiung mayoral primary election. However, many people wonder how legal it is to drive such car without a license plate.
Forum members criticized the post:
"He modified the car illegally."
"Doesn't he need to do the vehicle inspections?"
"He is the future mayor of Kaohsiung, he can do whatever he wants."
