Northern Territory now has 336km of unlimited-speed road, and its government wants more

The Northern Territory government took an “evidence-based” decision to expand its open speed-limit zone this week, and says it plans to de-restrict ever greater pieces of road if re-elected in late August. As expected, speed limits were removed from a further 60km of the Stuart Highway this week, creating a continuous open zone of 336km from the north of Alice Springs to the Ali Curung rail overpass (excusing roadhouses and small communities)...

I will not be teaching my daughter to drive

My daughter is counting down the days until she can get her learner licence. The closer it gets, the more she talks about it and the more I question whether I'm the best person to teach her. She's lucky enough to have cousins that live on a farm, though, and thanks to the family paddock-basher, has already developed an appetite for driving manuals with good ol' fashioned handbrakes and a keen interest in cars...
