Free 2 hour parking will be permitted along the roads of a total of 520 traditional markets throughout the nation, including Busan Kkangtong Market and Choongjoo Yookgeori Market, from today until the end of October.

The Ministry of the Interior and Safety and the National Police Agency said they decided to permit the free parking rule to an additional 369 markets, to boost domestic demand during the Chuseok holidays and Korea Festa Sale.

Traffic police and parking management staff will be helping to control the traffic flow where free parking is permitted.
