Many of them confuse the pedals or later react to changes in traffic situations around them. Initially, these licenses will be issued on a voluntary basis instead of the usual right.

With regard to the mandatory imposition of such documents, it will likely be possible only after wider dissemination of the technology of automatic braking in the automotive industry and their cheaper. The Japanese government intends to consult with manufacturers concerning further introduction of electronic “helpers” when driving and the prospects for their installation on the cheaper model.
