President Tsai Ing-wen sent out a Mother's Day greeting on her Facebook page on Sunday.
The president posted a photo of herself along with her mother. In the post she wrote that her only hope was for her mother to stay healthy. She also offered her best wishes for all mothers on this special day.
Meanwhile, the National Freeway Bureau is reporting an 8% increase in traffic volume over Mother's Day weekend. The increase in traffic has led to traffic congestion on Highway No. 5. The bureau says the average speed of traffic was 28km/h for the westbound section of the Highway, and 58km/h on the eastbound section.
The bureau has not ordered any traffic restrictions on the highway. Officials say, though, that they will consider expanding the number of available lanes if congestion continues.
