thus, seoul has little cars on her roads temporarily




but it's some strange, ,I doubt if this emptiness of roads means that seoul is empty.. .. actually the most cars are still in Seoul, for example, my apartment parking lot is full of cars still now, which take a rest following their owners.. I guess the emptiness of roads maybe is 'temporary' just for holidays now..

Does Korea slap foreign cars with high import tax? I notice, with the exception of a Bimmer and a Benz, all the cars in this thread are Korean.

Thanks to the Free Trade Agreements made between SK and the USA, hopefully we'll be seeing more American branded cars on the road over there. We're building great Hyundai cars here in Alabama and soon Kias next door in Georgia.

The Southern USA enjoys building Korean cars.

yep.. now, a funny thing is,, that after GM bought Daewoo here,, they bring their GM cars in this country and sell those cars through Daewoo.. then, even the name Daewoo was attached to those cars,.. while they export the Daewoo cars produced here to foreign countries... so, actually Daewoo cars are a litte shown here, compared to other korean cars..,, but GM cars are much more than before... anyway,, generally american cars are increasing now remarkably than before...

It's 8%. And American cars, being the fuel guzzers that they are, are relatively disadvantaged compared to other import cars because Korean car owners have to pay more tax for cars that use more fuel. Nonetheless, you can occassionaly see Lincolns, and less often Cadillacs. The main motive for rich Koreans to purchase imported luxury cars is the rarity of parts.. it takes a fortune to fix them, so other drivers, especially the ruthless cab drivers, are more careful around imported luxury cars. Hence, less possibility of accidents and increased safety.

I noticed that Korean expressways have more buses on their far left lane than in other countries. I also read that Korean drivers love to cut others off and hog up the left lane.

oh, nope.. in this way, prejudice spreads... and debate happens..

well... those most left lane in expressways is the exclusive one just for buses... to give priority to public transportation rather than individual cars..
especially such long holidays as Chuseok in korea,, so many people return to their hometown,.. so those many cars concentrate in expressways and get traffic jam.. but on the other hand,, many other people use buses also more efficiently,, actually thanks to those exclusive lanes,, buses go faster than so many bumper to bumper private cars...

yep,, of course,, many koreans sometimes tend to cut off others on the roads.. but,, such tendency and road system are different things...
I hope it's good enough answer..

Funny, Korean cars weren´t that good here in Europe, until a couple of years... Everybody liked Japanese cars better, because of their incredible durability.
