    Almost a year ago, South Korea passed the so-called “Min-sik Law” named after a nine-year-old who was run over and killed by a speeding car in a school zone. And as part of efforts to protect children, by this June, the city of Seoul will have installed speed cameras at every elementary school in the city. As of 2019, there were only 86 speed cameras in school zones. Last year, they installed almost 500, and with 400 to be installed in the first half of this year, the total will rise to 1,000. They’ll also install more in school zones near kindergartens and daycare centers. And for kids crossing the street, there will be speed bumps and LEDs installed in the crosswalks.
