Police in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture, on Monday arrested a 72-year-old man on suspicion of violating the Road Traffic Law by driving without a valid license for 40 years.
A police patrol spotted the car driving erratically in Yahatanishi Ward at around 4:15 a.m. Monday, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police asked the driver to pull over and questioned him.
The driver, Yutaka Shigematsu, a construction worker, admitted to police that he had been driving without a valid license since 1978. He was quoted as saying he found it too much of a bother to go through the process of renewing his license.© Japan Today
