Due to legislation brought in on Nov. 24, all passengers should use seat belts when using intercity buses, taxis and chartered buses. Transport operators and drivers who fail to enforce the legislation face penalties of 500,000 and 100,000 Korean won, respectively. Passengers will not be subject to any fines under this new regulation and city and village buses are exempt.

The new “Presidential Decree in Passenger Cars and Transportation Business Law,” has been revised by the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs. The legislation stipulates that drivers are obligated to inform passengers to fasten seat belts at all points of embarkation. All transportation companies should also provide drivers with training on enforcing the new legislation.

Seat belts should be fastened at all times on all intercity buses, charter buses, in all specified passenger cars (e.g., funeral cars), and on the metropolitan fast express (the M bus which connects Seoul to cities of Gyeonggi Province). Inner-city buses are exempt from the new decree and the new legislation only applies to taxis when on express ways, or roads for the exclusive use of vehicles . If passengers are carrying an injury, disabled, obese, or pregnant, they are exempt from the new regulations. For further information please visit this website: www.mcsf.go.kr.
