No Driving Campaign - Seoul    


No Driving Campaign - Seoul
 

In order to improve the flow of traffic in a city in which the majority of people seem to have a car and a large area of which was never designed for automobiles, the City of Seoul has insituted a No-Driving Campaign. Car owners who sign up for the program commit to using other forms of transportation one day a week. Officials also hope that as participation grows, there will also be a positive impact on air quality in the city.

Cars participating in the No-Driving Campaign sport coloured electronic stickers in the corner of their windshield on which is indicated a specific day of the week. These electronic stickers allow access to  public parking stalls while participation in the programme results in a variety of benefits such as a reduction in automobile tax, discounts on parking fees, priority for residential parking, car maintenance discounts, free or discounted car washes/detailing as well as a number of other incentives.

Both local and foreign drivers can enroll in the program. To apply, stop by your local community center (to find the one near you, click here. You will be asked to provide the following information:
1. your car registration
2. you license plate number
3. your alien registration number (or for Korean ID number).
You will then have to fill out the form - someone will help you if you don't read Korean.

And that's it, you're on your way to doing your bit to help control traffic and reduce pollution in Seoul.
