SEOUL, Oct. 4 (Korea Bizwire) – “The best safeguard against dozing off at the wheel is rest. If you feel tired, I urge you to take a rest at a rest area or a driving shelter,” said President Moon on October 2nd.
“Eight out of ten people travel to their hometowns by car. The most dangerous condition while driving long distance is dozing off behind the wheel. Also, please don’t forget to fasten your seatbelt before leaving the rest area,” said Mr. Moon on TBS traffic radio in the morning, as a one-day traffic correspondent.
President Moon appeared live at the Traffic Information Center in Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do to inform drivers of traffic information on Korea’s highways and local roads, and providing special Chuseok greetings to people on their way to their hometowns.
President Moon started his broadcast by saying, “Good Morning, this is Moon Jaein. I am here to provide traffic information for you on your way to your hometown. I guess you might be a little surprised to hear the President suddenly appear on the radio. I am sure many of you listening to the radio are already in your hometown at heart.”
“The Chuseok holiday is long this year. I hope all of you who have worked hard can travel to your hometowns and take break in a leisurely way. And the government will do its best for each one of you to visit and come back from your hometown safely and comfortably.” added Mr. Moon.
When the announcer asked about his plans for the holidays, President Moon answered
“I am planning to hold a memorial ceremony for ancestors in the Blue House. I am little disappointed not to be able to go to my hometown and visit my ancestors’ graves.
I will spend time resting, while getting ready for possible events.”
