Aussie drivers say 'not my place' to caution friends against dangerous driving: study

A new study conducted by the Australian Road Safety Foundation (ARSF) has found that road users not only display irresponsible behaviour on the roads, but there are plenty who also allow it to happen. The research shows that 49 per cent of Australians do not ask speeding friends or family members to slow down, as they believe it isn't their place to caution another driver. Meanwhile, 46 per cent of people don't tell texting uber, taxi or personal drivers to put their phone away.

Metal shard from Takata airbag injures driver in Darwin

The Takata airbag scandal has claimed its first victim in Australia, with a driver of a Toyota Rav4 in Darwin injured during an otherwise minor car crash. The ABC has reported the 21 year old driver was involved in a collision severe enough for the driver's airbag to deploy. The airbag failed to do so correctly, and a metal shard from the airbag housing struck the driver in the head.

2018 Holden Commodore 'VXR' spied

The Holden Commodore 'VXR' has been spied undergoing road testing in Germany, and despite being sold with Opel, Vauxhall and Buick badges elsewhere in the world, this prototype is wearing the Holden lion. It's not certain what the hottest variant yet of the next-generation Commodore will be known as, but it's almost certain it will be branded as the Opel Insignia OPC on the Continent, and the Vauxhall Insignia VXR in the UK.
