South Korea’s government consider ‘no-driving day’ policy

South Korean government officials are considering the implementation of a ‘no-driving’ day across the country’s major cities to tackle extreme air pollution.
‘Alternate no-driving day’ is a possible solution to tackling the extreme air pollution that is present in South Korea. Under the scheme half of all affected vehicles would be banned from roads, dependent on the last digit of the license plate.
Currently, the no-driving program would apply to public servants and employees of state-run organisations only, however a bill is pending to extend this. Fines of up to 100,000 won ($93) will be enforced onto anyone who drives on designated off days.
