Winter is here and that means we can expect more rain, more fog and even ice on the roads in some places, so why can’t we all drive to the conditions?
In an homage to the 1968 film Bullitt starring Steve McQueen, organisers of the Silverstone Classic have recreated cinematography’s most famous movie scene involving a car, the Bullitt car chase scene.
Paul Murrell says a report from RACQ Insurance shows motorists are becoming increasingly frustrated by draconian speed limit enforcement and penalties, and asks why should it be illegal for motorists to warn each other of speed traps.

Tony Bosworth has a dream… an electric Tesla S dream. But he wonders why, when electric cars make so much sense do Australians continue to buy gas guzzlers. THIS IS MY AVERAGE DAY… I get up, have breakfast, do all the usual stuff, and then go down to my garage.
The authorities persist in road rule enforcement and penalty application that patently isn’t doing much to reduce the road toll or make our roads safer. That’s why people get so angry about being pinged for relatively minor offences while the really dangerous drivers carry on regardless.
