* British sketch show ''NotTheNineOClockNews'' parodied what was then a commercial for FIAT cars with ''Designed By Computer.'' (shots of car in outline desgn rotating on computer screen) ''Built by Robots'' (Shots of cars on assembly line being tooled by long sophisticated robotic arm). ''But driven by Italians'' (Shots of rush-hour traffic in Rome and attendant motoring mayhem.)

* In the NicolasCage film ''Film/GoneInSixtySeconds2000'', one of the team members is now a driving instructor, and his most hopeless student is an Asian [[WomenDrivers woman]]. It's plain insulting.

-->"I secretly harbor racist views, racist views, racist views / I secretly harbor racist views / I don't think Asians drive well.""[[note]]in Britain, the immediate association of the word "Asian" is with Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, et c. And yes, the prejudice applies here - see "Discussion". "Asians", in the American sense, are differentiated as Chinese, Japanese, et c.[[/note]]

* In the ComedyCentral Roast of Creator/WilliamShatner, Shatner at one point jokes about how brave a program ''Franchise/StarTrek'' was. For God's sake, they let an Asian guy[[note]]Sulu[[/note]] drive!

The stereotype being used on Asians outside of Asia likely has to do with anti-immigrant prejudices. In the US, it doesn't help that some of the prominent Asian immigrant communities are in UsefulNotes/{{California}}, [[BigApplesauce New]] [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkState York]] and [[{{Joisey}} New Jersey]], three states where the populations in general have reputations (backed by [[http://www.gmacinsurance.com/SafeDriving/StateRankings.asp GMAC Insurance's annual study]], no less) for [[DrivesLikeCrazy being terrible drivers]] regardless of race. This likely means the Asian immigrants are convenient scapegoats for traffic accidents.
