<Hyunjun Go/Presentation Critic> The

number of elderly drivers 65 or older is increasing year by year, and the number of accidents caused by elderly drivers is increasing rapidly.

According to the Korea Road Traffic Authority, the number of accidents with elderly drivers aged 65 and over increased from 23,000 in 2015 to 33,000 last year, up 144% in four years.

In addition, the number of elderly drivers is expected to increase by 50% to 4.98 million in five years. Accordingly, Seoul City is an incentive system that provides a transportation card worth 100,000 won if an elderly driver over 70 years old voluntarily returns the driver's license. Prepared.

Last year, 7,500 drivers received transportation cards by voluntarily returning their licenses, and 14,000 so far this year.

Although it is a one-time basis, it is believed that thanks to the incentive to pay a transportation card, even those with a wardrobe license, who do not normally drive, have voluntarily returned.

One of the reasons is that since last July, the driver's license can be returned at the Dong Community Center near home without the need to go to the police station or the driver's license test center.


Of course, even in your 90s, you can drive if you are healthy, but I think it's a good idea to return these people because they are in an unsuitable physical condition.

What about the next news?

Today (23rd), we will deliver the last news.

You may have heard that it is difficult to get a job these days, but as the job market freezes, the age range of new employees has also increased.

When a job site surveyed 381 companies on the age change of new employees, 6 out of 10 answered that the new employees are getting older.

In fact, the proportion of applicants in their 30s or older was found to be more than 3 out of 10, and 74% of companies that hired new employees in their 30s or older this year.

The reason why new employees are getting older seems to be due to extreme employment difficulties, and it took a long time to build up so-called specs such as language training and internship experience to enter a good job.

The increase in the so-called'second-hand newcomers' who first entered small and medium-sized businesses and then hired a large company again had an impact.Some companies welcomed second-hand new hires, saying that they are better at adapting to their training period than beginner new hires. .

When looking at the satisfaction level of new employees in their 30s or older compared to those in their 20s, the majority of respondents answered'no difference', and 36% answered'higher than in their 20s'.
