    I too am a victim of the depressing Japanese Licence Renewal video. Even though my Japanese isn’t great the universal language of uncontrolled sobbing broke through the barrier and I left the room with a new licence and heavy heart.

    I’ve always wondered what those numbers on the Koban sign meant, so thanks. I knew they meant deaths and injuries from something or other, but I never remembered to ask anyone about it.

    As a kid in the late 60′s/early 70′s I remember visiting relatives in Roanoke, VA. and seeing the Mill Mountain star lit in red when someone died in traffic that day — made a big impression on me as I’m sure it did many as the star is visible throughout much of the valley.
