Won't Miss #85 - loud sound trucks
In Japan, certain types of commercials are illegal including overt political ads. That means that politicians have to find other ways to get their messages out. One of those ways is to drive around having their messages blare from loudspeakers. Similarly, right-wing extremists drive around loudly playing their messages. These trucks drive slowly so that more of their message is heard and the noise pollution is extremely irritating.
I won't miss the all too frequent appearance of these types of sound trucks.
