We've covered the phenomenon of "real life" Mario Karting in the past, but it would seem that this light-hearted attempt to replicate the feel of the classic racing series comes with some pretty negative side-effects.
According to Kotaku, one tourist crashed a MariCar into a police box, while another was arrested following an alleged hit-and-run. The victim in the latter case required several weeks to fully recover.
The latest mishap involved a 30-something tourist from Singapore driving a MariCar onto the pavement and into a restaurant sign. Oops.
Mercifully, no pedestrians were involved and the driver sustained only minor injuries.
