Shenjingbing - Now Japanese using cars as weapons. 

I've been living here nearly two decades and there is nothing new about this scenario. It's very often the weapon of choice. I've had direct experience of some nut job trying to run me off the road and then, when I got out he tried to run me over as he fled, like the cowardly POS he really is. Japan is not as safe as the brochures like to promote it to be. There are many angry and delusional little men running around ready to take a cowardly swipe at anyone who peeves them off.
