The Busan Police Agency agrees with the plan to lower the speed limit of the so-called the living road districts to 30 kilometers an hour. This will include residential areas and shopping districts where pedestrian accidents frequently occur.
The plan will go ahead in Dongnae-gu, Myeongryun-dong, Yeonjeo-gu, Yeonsan-dong and Haeundae-gu, Jung-dong.
Similar measures implemented in Seoul reduced traffic accidents by 34.5 percent while measures in Incheon reduced accidents by 16.5%.
