Stickers for Fresh and Aged Drivers, 若葉マークとシルバーマーク

 

In Japan, a newly-licensed driver within one year must put the new driver sticker on the rear of the car.

日本では、車の免許を取得した後一年間は、車の後方に初心者マークを貼らなければなりません。

Otherwise, the violator is imposed on a traffic violation ticket and a 6000-yen fine.

違反した場合、運転者は違反点1点、罰金6千円を課せられます。

The drivers who disturb the beginner's car are also imposed on traffic penalty. 

また、初心者を妨害した車も違反点と罰金をとられます。

This traffic rule was established in 1972.

この制度は、1972年にできました。

Many countries introduce similar rules.

多くの国で同様の制度を取り入れています。

Stickers for Fresh and Aged Drivers, 若葉マークとシルバーマーク

The drivers who are over 70 are asked to put this sticker on the rear of the car.

70歳を超えた運転手は、四つ葉マークを貼るように求められています。

As people get older, judging power for driving becomes deteriorated.

加齢による判断力の衰えのためです。

Unlike the sticker for new drivers, it is not a duty. So you are not given a violation ticket or a fine even if you don't.

初心者マークと異なり、表示義務はありません。従いまして、表示していなかったからといって、違反切符を切られたり、罰金が与えられることはありません。

However, the drivers who disturb the car with the four-leaved sticker are imposed on violation penalty.

一方、妨害車は若葉マークと同じ罰則が適用されます。

Masaki could not have worked harder. He took us to all of the places we wanted to see and tailored the itinerary perfectly. He is full of knowledge and good humour.

Masaki is an excellent guide. Being a previous history teacher, his knowledge allowed us to appreciated the sites much more. While English is his second language, he was understandable. We only had 10 hours during our cruise to see Osaka and the surrounding area, but he catered to the destinations and activities that we wanted in the short amount of time allowed. He also had good and prompt commun...
