The July 13 edition of Okinawa Times led with a report saying that concerning the illegal taxi service being provided by people connected to the U.S. military in Okinawa by using their vehicles with the special “Y” license plate, they are apparently providing the illegal service to foreign tourists visiting Okinawa in addition to U.S. military personnel and their dependents. Meanwhile, the paper wrote that the U.S. Marines in Okinawa posted on their Facebook account a message from the Okinawa Area Coordinator, Lt. Gen. H. Stacy Clardy, saying: “Operating a ride-share service for money is illegal under the Japanese Road Transportation Act.”
