交通事故 Part II

So I mentioned in a post in February how bad Japanese drivers really are.
Call it a stereotype, or even racism for my part , I don’t care after today. I didn’t need confirmation of this ( I already had enough of that in October) but I nevertheless got it today.
So I was riding my bike on a priority street (all streets from the left and right had stop signs and white stripes : meaning the street I was on had priority). So I come to a taxi company , and see a car approaching from a street to the left of me. Of course since my street has priority he stops and lets the cars in my street go ahead. I figure : this guy is letting me pass  as well.
I should have known  better. As I was crossing his path, the guy put the pedal to the metal , hitting me in the side and sending me and my bike flying. Fortunately I was spared from any serious injury other than some bruises and a nasty flesh wound. The guy hadn’t even bothered looking to his left side : I was in a one way street : one way for cars  not for bicycles , so he didn’t find it necessary to check his left side. He got out of the car and apologised and helped me get back on my bike, but none of the bystanders even gave a shit. They acted like nothing happened.  So I said fuck it and left the scene.

Something is seriously fucked in Japan. Is it like the educational system perhaps, where practical knowledge of something isn’t required? Is driving in a protective enviroment enough to get a license ? (that’s right, all Japanese driving schools have this miniature car park, simulating everything in a closed enviroment). Of course they have driving lessons on the street as well, but judging by the way 99% drive of them… they must be shit.

Seriously, I’m just angry right now, but that isn’t clouding my vision. I’ve seen it happen, experienced it first hand , and heared other people tell about it :

JAPANESE PEOPLE CAN NOT PROPERLY DRIVE A CAR, BIKE, MOTORCYCLE OR ANY MOVING VEHICLE.
