Australia's Easter road toll cut by more than half amid coronavirus restrictions

Australia's Easter long weekend road toll has fallen in 2020 compared to 2019, as motorists stay home amid coronavirus lockdowns. According to provisional figures, six Australians lost their lives on the nation's roads over the five-day period from Thursday through to Easter Monday, compared with 19 during the same period last year. Six deaths is less than half of the five-year average of 15 deaths, with the lowest Easter road toll in recent years being eight people in 2016.

UK introduces tougher taxes for petrol and diesel buyers in EV push

Tough new car tax revisions – which could see the duty on some models increase by up to £1285 (AU$2580) – have come into place for petrol and diesel new-car buyers in the UK. As reported by AutoTrader and The Times, the revisions affect the Vehicle Excise Duty (for personal cars) and Benefit in Kind (for corporate vehicles) taxes that are paid at purchase of a new car. These amounts are based on the vehicle’s projected emissions in the first 12 months of ownership.
