I have driven in a lot of countries, but Korea is definately one of the worst. If it weren't for the enormous volume of traffic, the lack of respect for the rules of the road, and the random no-notice construction, the highways would be fine. The narrow roads in town, along with the park-anywhere policy, and the lack of traffic law enforcement makes the towns and cities even worse.

If you happen to get in a minor accident, the best bet is to negotiate a quick settlement with the other drivers before the police arrive--even if there is no damage--otherwise the person at fault will be fined by the police...
