I'm going to grow a mustache, and in turn, probably end up looking like a pedophile.

What are you doing? 

dependapotamus --- 10 years ago -

Going over my car wreck in my mind over and over again. UGH today wasn't a good day at all...
My thing is why don't the locals have to have insurance? We do why don't they? I know ours is more to protect us but why don't they have to? what happens if they hit us????
umm never mind i know the answer to that we are yankee's and its our fault. good to know.. UGH today

It has been one hour since you posted that comment; how does your moustache look now? 

Amurikan Lunatic --- 10 years ago -

Not quite there yet. I'm not what one would call a gorilla of a man. 

Casey --- 10 years ago -

my husband grows a stache in about 2-3 days... thankfully, it annoys him and he doesn't keep it. he shaves it before he gets home from deployment. 

All Abouts --- 10 years ago -

Trying to hire people and is not working :(

I'm actually pretty sure the locals are supposed to have insurance. It's just not enforced very well like all the other car rules here.

The owner of the car not the guy driving did not have insurance on his VERY nice VERY newer Lexus... They've already contacted my insurance company at 1145 yesterday requesting money. I was like crap i was still at the crash site waiting for a tow truck.. WOW they work fast here..

THe only insurance requirement for Japanese drivers/car owners is the JCI.
If Japanese drive without additional insurance they are responsible for costs "out of their own pocket".

Once the police report is completed, the owners/insurance companies will decide on repair payments. It is very dependent on the extent of property (car) damage and personal injury.

One of my Okinawan friends still gets a small monthly payment for an accident from several years ago. And his medical checkups related to the accident are continued to be paid for by the other person/insurance.

You can ask your insurance agent here about the rules/laws. A good agent will take time to explain it in more detail than those pamphlets they hand out. 

sToO --- 10 years ago -

Make sure your insurance company that you pay premiums to is working just as fast for you.

umm nope i will have to pay out of pocket for my lovely car repairs.. Joy...
No one told me we only had liability here, not full coverage and I asked about that once the lady said that. She was like oh ummm we don't offer full coverage..SOOOOOO your saying i'm screwed? good to know thanks.
I'm not going to go on a I hate okinawa rampage or anything like that, I just the military had more in place to protect us as well as the locals. No one spoke to me yesterday MP's Local Police, umm translator nothing.. MP's just said here's this go to your insurance good luck. Then called me and requested me to go to the ER or Doctors to make sure i was ok. UGH i'm more upset that it happen VS being I hate Japanese's bad drivers. IT happened nothing i can do to change it... Just wish i would have known my car won't be fixed anytime soon.

ya the driving rules suck here... we get shafted whether its our fault or not! 

LovedLivingInOki --- 10 years ago -

Unfortunately even in the US, if you rear end someone, it's more than likely going to be considered your fault.

Culp, I hope you post a mustache picture.

Also, on the Simpsons tonight, they used the Greek name Uri Nader. 

Amurikan Lunatic --- 10 years ago -

Uri Nader.


Nice! 

sToO --- 10 years ago -

Uri is a close relative of Ralph's? I never knew he was of Greek ancestry.

Where is the moustache update news? 

Chuck --- 10 years ago -

I received payment of $3,000 for my van that a local totaled, plus another $3,000 to cover my injuries and they provided me with a rental car for 30 days.

Originally they only wanted to pay me $1,000 for my "gunny" van but I insisted that if they felt $1,000 was fair then go to a local lot and buy one for $1,000 and bring it to me. They eventually raised their offer.
