Shoshinsha/ Wakaba mark

Ever see those ricer/import/JDM freaks riding around with a green and yellow sticker? Well here is the meaning of that sticker! Pretty funny that the ricer world has made an entire community with these stickers! They would like to have whatever stickers the Japanese has on their car. JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) BRO! Let's see what is the actual meaning of this green and yellow sticker. "The Shoshinsha mark (初心者マーク?) or Wakaba mark (若葉マーク?), introduced in 1972, is a green and yellow V-shaped symbol that new Japanese drivers must display on their cars for one year. A driver must display this mark on the front and back of the car for one year after they obtain a standard driver's licence. This obligation is only for a standard license, not for motorcycles, large vehicles, special cars, and so on. Drivers who consider themselves beginners may continue to display the sign, even after the period of a year."

OK ricers, it is something similar to the "P" sticker for the beginners. After knowing the actual meaning of this green and yellow sticker do you still want to continue to stick them on your windscreen?

Here is a video that someone came up with.
