    So far this year, the number of old diesel cars registered in Seoul has declined by 16,000. Such vehicles are considered one of the biggest causes of fine dust pollution. Owners get government subsidies to replace them with newer ones. Old diesels are also banned from entering some central parts of the capital. Reportedly the level of fine dust during the December to March period was down by around 20 percent on year.
