Japan has a huge vehicle industry all over the world, and their car is so popular and famous for its high quality. It is the famous that Japanese created the drift which is the special way to turn the curve and it requires the high skills. However, there is a stereotypes about Asian, of course we Japanese are included; Asian cannot drive a car.
This is such an ignorant idea since this stereotype defines all Asian cannot drive well. For me as the international student drives here in Los Angeles, people here is much more terrible at driving if I compare with the driver in Japan. I don't know about other Asian countries. They may be terrible but probably not. However, I am sure that we Japanese are not that terrible in general speaking.
On the other hand, there is another stereotypes that women cannot drive. Therefore, it all depends on who is driving and it is not about the race or gender.
