It shocks me sometimes how much fandom freaks out about little things. No matter how good a driver you are, as soon as you get behind the wheel, you risk getting into an accident.

I, on the other hand, am just laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of it all.

Let's remember that this is Matsujun's 2nd accident (that we know of). Though, that was just a scrape (and it wasn't even his car) but that's 2 more accidents than I've ever been in. Though, he has probably clocked more driving hours than I have. To me, this is just more evidence that Japanese people are poor drivers (need a recall the day a taxi nearly clipped me while I was in the zebra crossing?). Not only that, they are so ill-prepared for bad weather. Hello, this isn't Okinawa; Kanto does get snow, however infrequently. Thank you, global warming. That shouldn't be an excuse for accidents. And fuck, it was only 1cm! It's winter—rain + cold = black ice. You should have snow tires on your car regardless.

Maybe it's because I'm Canadian and snowy winters are a given. It snowed nearly every day I was home this past X'mas. Vancouver is exactly the same: if they get more than 3cm on the ground, the busses grind to a halt and city goes into shock. I can forgive that because the GTA is mountainous. I'm sorry but Tokyo is flat as a board.
