Once a nice way to capture dear memories, cameras are now being used for bad purposes. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport국토교통부 has reported that crimes involving taking pictures of people without their permission have more than doubled in the last three years. In order to prevent this, they have installed hi-resolution surveillance cameras (CCTV) in 40 major subway stations. In addition, the Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit서울특별시 도시철도공사 has set up “safety stairs” in Gongdeok Station, Gwanghwamun Station, and Gasan Digital Complex Station. These stairs promote awareness about these crimes and urge people to turn in the perpetrators to the police! Watch out for these criminals! Let’s protect the people around us!
