South Korea intends to boost road safety by tackling a key issue, drowsy driving. The country’s Transport Ministry has prioritised addressing tired driving following a series of crashes and road fatalities. Bus firms in the capital Seoul as well as Incheon and Gyeonggi Province are being required to install safety equipment during 2017, including lane departure warning and forward collision warning systems. The Transport Ministry also wants to make automatic braking technology a requirement for coaches, vans and trucks during 2018.
