"allowed her to be detained until Nov 26"
Becasue that is not the norm, they requested an extension. It was ALLOWED by the courts. 100% nothing wrong with that sentence.

Oh wow...this is a sad one.
I agree with you but 60 is a bit young...or maybe have a "stage 1" test during a doctors visit for motor skills and vision and at 70 a "stage 2" test at the licencing department.
Something needs to be done though...

Allowed? Were the laws changed?
You know languages are dynamic and always changing right? Also, "blind" is an absolute where as being visually impaired has a range...it's a much more apt description most of the time.

"In Saudi Arabia, however, it's not a matter of choice..."
There are a lot of countries that while not the law, you face threats of harm of you don't wear one such as Afghanistan or Pakistan..many countries in Africa too...
"a genuine choice made of a woman's own free will and religious conviction"
When you are indoctrinated at birth, there really is no free will.

...another man loses his child-like mind, has a tantrum and tries to kill somebody because he didn't get what he wanted.
Pathetic. Six years to think about that sounds good...

"...traffic science are far more complex than just big vs small cars."
I think we're actually in total agreement as this is the point I was trying to make that blanket statements such as "Kei's are deathtraps" is just pure hyperbole and easily disproven with facts.
"in Japan most accidents occur within proximity of or not so far away from the drivers homes"
Also true in North America..I believe it's within 2km on average.

I believe the Spark is classes as a sub-compact as it's size and engine(1L and up) clearly parks in there. Kei, being 660cc max clearly are NOT the same animal. Between Kei and Sub-Compacts you also have micros too I believe.
Your claim is for another class and not for the real class of Kei cars.

Correct that was my error.
But the point is still the same; even when using your stat, you would think with over 1/3rd of all cars being of the Kei class (apx), the fatalities would be a lot higher than in the USA and their big/safe vehicles. But they are not which is contrary to the OP I was replying to...

Ebisen, let me explain it so that you also understand:
"at faster speeds is really high, especially when they crash agains a real car,"
So then by your logic the road deaths in the USA should be lower as they are all "real cars"...yet it's not...by a long shot.

"this is calculated in terms of accidents per capita, and in the USA many more people rely on cars and drive much more than in Japan, so that skews the numbers a bit."
Um, per capita removes data skewing as it's a value generated regardless of population size.
-2 ( +0 / -2 )
You know that even with those so called "death traps" you whined about, Japan is still one of the safest countries to drive in. The USA with all it's "huge" cars has over twice the fatalities per capita as that of Japan...
