patrolman phoning in the information from my
international drivers license. Riding two-up
is illegal on the expressways, although a
new law passed in June 2004 makes it legal.
There is some confusion as to when the new
law takes effect: June 2004, October 2004 or
June 2005. These troopers were convinced
it’s June 2005, so Steph got to take a ride
in the back of a patrol car to the next
exit. ~ 50 miles north of Tokyo, Japan.
