Does having your foot hard on the accelerator when you leave work get you home quicker? It may surprise you, but it will not. Tests have shown that driving at a steady 80km/h is the quickest way to get from A to B. Being patient is essential. There is also no gain in changing from lanes. | ▶ shortest not stories news restrictions . |◀ |
M4 Motorway Sydney
The problem is that motorists do not like speed restrictions. Attempts in the past have received barrages of criticism. However, with less damage to the environment at lower speeds, there will be more pressure the other way. Authorities will ultimately bring in restrictions.  | ▶ | australian restrictions driving 80km/h◀ |    
Automobile bodies say that slowing down, stopping and accelerating causes most pollution. They, of course, are living in dreamland. Traffic lights are necessary to distribute traffic. Nothing can be done to get "cruise" motoring conditions. Indeed, those driving at the limit on 100km/h motorways have to keep slowing down behind others travelling at 80km/h. | ▶ | not. | ▶   
A variable speed system is to be tried on Sydney's M4 motorway later this year. Computers will make calculations which will give optimal speeds to be set on particular sections to improve flow. There could be problems with this because motorists will assume that limits today are the same as yesterday, not realizing that they are being changed throughout the day.    | ▶ | not | ◀ |

Volvo Protects Cars From Kangaroos

Though the protected bars on the front of rural vehicles is called a bull bar, it was originally designed to stop damage from hitting a kangaroo. These animals are as common as muck in Australia. Indeed, they are a native pest if ever there was one. Countless kangaroos invade farms all the time eating grass meant for food animals and drinking water pumped out of the ground.

It is unusual for a driver to hit a wandering cow. Because they are valuable they are generally safely penned in. On the other hand, kangaroos wander freely. If they can't jump over a fence they will run through it. Several years ago I saw the remains of a kangaroo paw hanging from a fence wire. Obviously, the animal had survived and bounded on his way.

Volvo Australia is studying kangaroo behavior on the roadside. They intend to fit a radar sensor to cars that will scan the road ahead. When a kangaroo is detected directly ahead within contact range the brakes will be automatically applied to a vehicle.
Car write off by impact with kangaroo
If Volvo is successful it will dramatically reduce insurance costs. Over 20,000 kangaroos are hit annually in Australia. It is like hitting a brick wall. Some vehicles are written off; there is so much damage.

Australia is Heading for Economic Disaster

The Australian economy is heading southward and this does not mean we are moving closer to Antarctica. Our financial health is still in primary products. The price and demand for iron ore and coal still drives the economy. At the moment the foot is really off the accelerator and we are idling downhill. We will eventually reach the bottom. Then the country will have big problems.
Tax revenue is already falling due to lower demand by China. US demand for Chinese good remains sluggish. As the world economy falls it impacts strongly on Australia. We have not made the move away from agriculture and manufacturing. This is mainly because our resource bowl has kept wages high. Manufacturing countries always have a wage differential advantage. In time, wages will rise in China as they have in Japan. Then companies will probably move to Southeast Asia.

The hope that Australia will have a increase in IT start-ups to offset the fall in resource exports is not well founded. Products in the Internet sphere have short lives, a few years at most. IT moves on the initiative of individuals. It never will be a mass employer. We need to forget this pie in the sky and concentrate on something else.

It will cost to improve employment. Government will have to subsidize companies to keep jobs here. Politicians make the same incorrect assumption over and over again - the free market will solve all economic problems. The free market has never done much without human input.  International trade exists due to comparative advantage. If a country does not have this in a sector, other sectors that do must pay.

A start would be tax breaks for enterprises who bring home their support services from India and the Philippines. To allow mining employment to fall without stimulation elsewhere is economic suicide. The country will fall into a very deep hole down the track. Opening more shopping centres is not the way go. This is not increasing the capital base. It is dividing up the market between too many sellers.
