In RealLife, this may have something to do with lax traffic laws in Asian countries and the fact that widespread automobile ownership in Asian countries is a new phenomenon for millions of people whose parents could only dream of driving a car. The result is that many of the defensive driving training and techniques developed and stressed in the west have not yet been as widely adapted in Asia. Finally, probably as a result of the workaholism encouraged by many Asian cultures, they are generally in a hurry. Also, China particularly is very heavily populated, which could lead to traffic jams and accidents.

** Shatner repeated the gag in the Roast of Creator/CharlieSheen explaining that he understood why Charlie was acting so crazy was because Shatner's generation made it more difficult for Sheen's to do edgy things because they were now passe. He cites his famous kiss with creator/NichelleNichols along with "Let the Asian man drive" as examples of edgy things done in his time that are just not so in the new millennium.

(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.
