The government is now enforcing an alternate no driving day restriction in Seoul to counter high levels of fine dust in the atmosphere.
The move is being implemented for the first time this year, on the 15th, Monday and affects all vehicles operated by public organizations in the capital city.
The government said the measures have been taken as the fine dust levels have reached 57 micrograms per cubic meter in Seoul as of 4:00pm on the 14th, Sunday. The numbers for nearby Incheon and Gyeonggi Province reached 54 micograms and 67 micrograms, respectively.
Such numbers represent "bad" concentrations of fine dust in the air that can pose health risks.
