Devastating Video Shows Tons of Rare JDM Sports Cars Abandoned in Fukushima’s Radiation Zone

Nuclear power plants operate with a very good margin of error. We all know the tragic story of Chernobyl. However, nearly 12 years ago, a massive tsunami hit Japan, causing a nuclear disaster at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The results were disastrous, causing the entire population to be evacuated and almost the entire area to be abandoned. The exclusion zone is where radiation levels remain high enough to be harmful. Here is where an urban explorer discovered dozens of extremely rare sports.

Why didn’t anyone take the abandoned cars?

Well, it turns out that there are annoying things called property laws. However, regardless of the theft, he explains that Japan has some very specific export laws.

In case you’re a little annoyed that these cars are left to rot, there’s a good chance after they’ve been soaked in all that radiation, they, too, have been irradiated. Aside from the obvious issue of driving an irradiated car, Japan has strict laws prohibiting any exports measuring more than 0.3 microsieverts, which is measured and exceeded by at least one car in the video. Despite these laws, there have been reports from all over the world of radioactive JDM cars. The drive points to a truck that was emitting 110 microsv per hour.

What happens to a car exposed to high level radiation?

While most motorists worry about rust eventually finding their old barn before it can be discovered, those radiated cars may not worry about it as much. However, this does not mean that they are not likely to meet a similar or even more gruesome death.

According to The Drive, exposing certain metals to high-level radiation can cause the metal to harden and become brittle. This phenomenon is creatively called radiation sclerosis. Along with fragility, the metal can begin to deform and even crack.

These rare and beautiful cars are slowly rotting away and turning neon green is a shame. It’s never fun to watch beautiful things get destroyed. However, it clearly pales in comparison to the bigger picture of the Fukushima disaster.
