S. Korean cargo truck drivers illegally modify vehicles to avoid using urea water solution
South Korean cargo truck drivers are illegally modifying their vehicles to be driven without urea water solution due to the material's skyrocketing prices.
The prices were pushed by the shortages brought on by a Chinese ban on urea exports.
In an online forum, cargo truck drivers discussed doing ‘vasectomies’ to their cargo trucks, which is slang for illegally modifying vehicles to avoid the use of urea water, a key diesel vehicle material for reducing emissions.
The ‘vasectomy’ is about installing a separate part or electronic control software.
According to online discussions, truck drivers are lining up to make reservations for the illegal modifications that cost between 1.5 to 2 million won.
