Noodle discount for elderly Japanese

Japanese police are giving noodle discounts to elderly drivers that hand in their licenses.

From yesterday, elderly drivers who handed over their drivers licences were being given a 15 percent discount at the Sugakiya restaurant chain.

The deal was arranged in a bid to reduce the number of traffic accidents on local roads.

This latest move is another way police were trying to persuade older people to give up driving. Other incentives include savings on taxis and at public baths.

Japan had seen a rise in the number of accidents involving elderly drivers in recent years, some of which had proved fatal, and prompted a nationwide debate.
