Posted in: Do's and don'ts for Thai tourists in Japan See in context

I am Japanese, and surely I have seldom met such scene that cars don't stop and forcibly cut in the way of people crossing the road. The Road Traffic Law in Japan provides the high priority of pedestrians. Everyone knows this principle. It is called in Japanese "Hokosha-Yusen" . It's famous. When a traffic accident between cars and pedestrians happens, the drivers must take almost always 100 percent of responsibility for it. But I wonder the principle of giving priority to pedestrians is not always adopted in other countries?? As far as I know, the same law imposes a penalty on the drivers who honk the horn against people passing over the zebra crossing. For reference.
