Nissan checking cars for radiation


A Nissan worker checks for radiation on a steering wheel before shipment to the United States.

He was doing so on the quayside before cars were sent to the US from the company's Oppama wharf in Yokosuka, south of Tokyo.

The company says it will conduct radiation level checks on 10 vehicles chosen randomly from each shipment in an effort to reassure customers overseas of their safety since the earthquake and tsunami damaged the Fukushima nuclear plant in northern Japan.
