¼Õ´Ô ±â´Ù¸®´Â Åýõé

ANSAN, Nov. 27 (Korea Bizwire) In another move to secure taxi passengers and drivers from the risk of infection amid the COVID-19 era, the city of Ansan, Gyeonggi Province, launched a campaign dubbed “Don’t Call Shotgun” on Wednesday.

The city, an hour’s drive southwest of Seoul, has distributed 3,000 copies of promotional stickers with the campaign slogan “Mask on When Taking a Taxi and Vacate the Front Passenger Seat!” to taxi operators.

The sticker will be attached on the front passenger’s backrest to encourage passengers to wear masks.

Taxis, which are a hugely popular form of public transportation in South Korea, are said to be hotspots for virus infection as relatively small, enclosed spaces compared to other vehicles such as buses and subway trains.
