Kanagawa Prefectural Police have arrested a 44-year-old man on suspicion of violating the Road Traffic Law after he suddenly stopped his motorcycle in front of a truck on an expressway last year.
According to police, Shuichi Aida, a house painter residing in Tokyo's Ota Ward, was riding his motorcycle along the Tomei Expressway in Yamato City at around 4:35 p.m. on Nov 8, Sankei Shimbun reported. He then approached a 10-ton truck driven by a 22-year-old company employee and began tailgating it.
After Aida passed the truck, he stopped his motorbike suddenly, forcing the truck driver to slam on his brakes. The sudden halt caused cardboard boxes inside the truck to tumble out onto the road, damaging their contents.
Police said Aida was arrested on Tuesday. He was identified after the incident was captured on the truck's dashcam and through security camera footage along the expressway.© RikiWeb
