Drive safely this Summer holiday

In December 2017, 40 people tragically lost their lives on our roads. This was 28 more than in December 2016. The good news is 35 fewer people died in 2018, compared to 2017. This holiday season we want to see that encouraging trend continue. Read More

Impatient driving has a price

Any article on road safety always states the big three killers – speeding, alcohol and fatigue. Distraction by mobiles is another, but there are no solid figures. So far, nobody has looked at the contribution of impatience. Impatience could be the cause or the result of all four killers. Read More

Road safety authorities are worried about distraction, but governments and businesses are finding more ways to distract us. Read More

Do you leave your keys in the car and walk away?

Everyone tells you what might happen if you leave your keys in the car and walk away. Someone says they always do it and nothing ever happens. But Budget Direct claims 18% of car thefts happen when keys are left in the ignition. Meanwhile, the Australian Road Rules take a clear position on leaving your keys in the car – don’t do it.

Dash cams and your insurance

Earlier this year Citroen started selling the first car in Australia already fitted with a dash cam. It may be a sign of things to come. In case of an accident, a dash cam can prove more easily what happened and who was responsible. But so far, owners of dash cams cannot get cheaper compulsory third party or other vehicle insurance.

Why driverless cars are not really autonomous

Driverless cars are going to free us up. No more tedious driving tasks. But what does it really mean to give up control? We don’t know. In fact, we could be giving up our autonomy in more ways than one. Read More

The war between drivers and cyclists

Some drivers don’t like sharing the roads with cyclists. Some cyclists feel the same about sharing the roads with motorists. It seems there’s a war going on between them, which makes the roads more dangerous for everyone. Read More
