    yeah, thats not going to work if you are going 140+

    tilted license plates, covers that reflect the camera flash, smearing mud over your plates - all are technically against the law but it just depends on how blatant it is and how bored the police are. Its unlikely you'll find too many options along these lines in places like yellowhat or autobacs but some shady tuning shop should be able to sort you out with them or you can buy them online if you are feeling brave.
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    All things considered that's not that unsafe. When it said no hands, I figured nothing touching the stick, but he's knee steering.

    Sure in the event of an emergency he's fucked, but looking at that traffic he's probably fucked anyways.

If you are caught by a marked police car then you deserve it for not paying attention.
    These are the only trouble I've had. Thought all cop cars were marked and had their lights on (lol nope) and got pulled over by a silver skyline. Got away with a warning and I've been careful since then, slowing down when cars suspiciously pull out from the left lane when I drive past them, slowing down around white crowns/silver skylines (didn't know about the black G4s), but recently my friend got pulled over (by another silver skyline) driving my car, almost got her license pulled (had her clocked at 129) and got smacked with a 35,000 fine (which we grudgingly split between everyone in the car). If someone else is going to drive my car (for switching off during long drives) I'd rather have a radar detector than trust the other driver's judgment.

    Here's a nice rundown of the different speed traps around Japan.

    80. On second thought maybe they had her clocked at 119.
