Driving long distances in winter: You need to be careful.

Posted in Motor Vehicle
Tuesday, 17 June 2014

Article PhotoDriving for long distances can be an enjoyable experience. Whether you're going on a road trip or simply trying to get from Point A to Point B, the experience of driving at your own pace can be a rewarding one.

However, driving for longer periods of time can also expose you to new hazards and risks such as driver fatigue. It's important for everyone on the road to be practising safe motoring habits, and this is particularly true for those who have a long journey ahead of them.

With the winter months now here, there's even more reason to drive safely at all times. Rainfall, snow and ice can add an extra element to the experience that drivers need to account for. According to the Transport for NSW Centre for Road Safety, in the year ended December 2012, wet surface conditions were a factor in 8,404 crashes. Of these, 51 were fatal, 3,162 resulted in an injury and 5,191 had no casualties.

Meanwhile, snow or ice on the roads was a factor in 80 crashes during that year, 28 of which resulted in injury and 52 with no casualties.

Sydney CBD Pedestrians

Posted in Traffic
Friday, 06 June 2014

We announced in a news article that the NSW Government is creating a 40km/h speed limit zone in the Sydney CBD, from the end of 2014.

Pedestrian safety is the main factor for the new speed zone.

As a driver who drives in the Sydney CBD every week day, it seems to me that there are other issues which need to be resolved and which will greatly increase pedestrian safety.

Pink Slip or Not

Posted in Licencing & Registration
Thursday, 05 June 2014

In a news article we advised that NSW Roads Minister Duncan Gay has announced that pink slips will be valid for six months, starting in January 2015.

Pink slips, known as e-Safety Checks, are currently valid for six weeks.

The change is designed to give vehicle owners greater flexibilty as to when they acquire the pink slip. For example, a pink slip can be acquired at the time of a regular service, rather than requiring a special trip to an authorised inspection station within six weeks before the registration due date.

It seems that there are some issues with the change.
