(Yonhap Feature) S. Korean car sharing industry speeds up with gov't backup

출처:

내용: 

SEOUL, March 4 (Yonhap) -- The South Korean car sharing industry is picking up speed to expand beyond the niche market to go mainstream as the government is set to ease regulations on the industry's operation as a way to curb congestion and pollution.

Short-term, automated car rentals entered the local business scene in 2011 as startup companies joined the global wave of the sharing economy to target tech-savvy youngsters in the densely-populated, highly-networked nation.

Members can preview the cars available and the associated outlets through the Internet and mobile devices. A smart key embedded in a membership card or smartphone application can be used, making pick-up and drop-off simple and convenient. Unlike regular services that rent a car by the day, the car sharing service rents cars by the hour, with insurance coverage included.

According to a survey by the Seoul Institute, a think tank under the Seoul government, 85.5 percent of users were in their 20s or 30s. The greatest usage was during the weekend and around midnight when public transportation is hard to find.

Diesel construction equipment also blamed for dust pollution

내용: 

SEOUL, May 27 (Yonhap) -- Diesel cars are being blamed as the main culprit of the chronic fine dust pollution in the country, but studies indicate that diesel construction equipment is also a big part of the problem, according to experts on Friday.

A tally from the Ministry of Land, infrastructure and Transport showed South Korea had 450,482 registered construction equipment as of end-March, 67 percent of them forklifts and excavators. The majority, experts say, use diesel fuel for cost and efficiency reasons, releasing dust and microdust particles and nitrogen oxide (NOx) into the air.

A report released by the Seoul Institute last year estimated that nearly one-third of dust and microdust emissions in the capital city came from operating construction machines. The figure, however, excludes dump trucks and concrete mixer trucks that are blamed for up to half of dust and NOx polluting Seoul's air.

Choi Yoo-jin, the author of the report, said construction machines have higher emissions levels than diesel passenger cars because of their bigger engines.

"The older the engine, the higher the emissions," Choi said. "The lifespans of these machines are also longer than regular vehicles'."

내용: 

The number of coffee shops in Seoul has increased 17 percent annually over the past four years to reach 9,400 as of 2011, according to the latest data from the Seoul Institute (SI) Wednesday.

The growth rate of the ubiquitous cafes outpaced that of other eateries, with the number of overall food and beverage shops growing 1.69 percent on average during the same period.

By district, Gangnam-gu had the highest number of coffee shops with 1,128 or 12 percent of the total, followed by Jongno-gu with 819, Mapo-gu with 759, and Seocho-gu with 630.

Yongsan-gu posted the biggest growth rate of 28.1 percent.

"While the number of coffee shops is increasing rapidly, the number of pubs or bars selling alcoholic beverage has been dwindling. This reflects changes in the pattern of consumption and lifestyle of Seoulites," said Park Hee-seok, the director of SI.

내용: 

The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG)'s 11-year-old incentive program for drivers who leave their cars at home once a week has come under attack as one study found it does little to reduce traffic.

According to the Seoul Institute affiliated with SMG, Tuesday, the program contributed to reducing traffic in Seoul by only 1.1 percent last year. The city government has spent almost 10 billion won annually to mainntain the program since the program was adopted in 2003.

The official said SMG will hold public hearings from June 19 to discuss the fate of the disputed program.

A study conducted by the institute showed 842,000 cars were participating in the incentive program as of September last year, 35.8 percent of entire cars registered in the capital.
