  • Traffic News SMG 3501

    The ‘Car Mileage Project’, with cash incentives of up to KRW 35,000, according to the mileage reduction within a 6-month period, is open to all car owners (insurance policy holder) from December.

    All citizens who own a car can participate, and 50,000 participants will be recruited by March 2015 on a first-come first-served basis. Eligibility is limited to persons who own non-business purpose cars and ten-seater or smaller registered in Seoul. In order to check the mileage reduction, compared to the previous year, as well as for systematic maintenance, the participants must agree to provide the Seoul Metropolitan Government with personal information as well as information about mileage performance.

    Those who wish to participate in the Car Mileage Program need to apply at the three participating insurance companies or the neighborhood (dong) community service center closest to them – participants must reduce their car mileage for six months compared to the previous year. Afterwards, the mileage will be checked and compared with the previous year’s mileage. Additionally, cash incentives will be provided to participants (wire transfer) according to their mileage reduction rate.

    Cash incentives of ▴KRW 10,000 for a 5-10% reduction, ▴KRW 15,000 for 10-20% reduction, ▴KRW 20,000 for 20-30% reduction, ▴KRW 25,000 for 30-40% reduction ▴KRW 30,000 for 40-50% reduction, and ▴KRW 35,000 for over 50% reduction of mileage compared to the previous year will be given to participants.
