Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Seoul
Traffic jams in the city of Seoul can be horrendous at times and in general, peak travel hours should be avoided at all costs, unless you intend to use quiet routes. Be extra vigilant for crazy motorcyclists and also lookout for yellow speed camera signs, as this often means that police are nearby. Locals tend to speed around the city, slowly down sharply and quite unexpectedly as they approach the speed cameras, and then zooming off again.
Many areas around Seoul are known for their steep roads and extremely sharp bends, which are especially dangerous during the winter. Parking spaces are fairly limited around the city and many locals are only allowed to park here on certain days.
