The Australian states with the most – and fewest – electric car charging points

New South Wales is officially the state with the largest number of public electric car charging points in Australia – but it has room to improve if it's going to continue servicing the growing number of electric cars on its roads. A new study from insurance company Budget Direct has broken down the number of DC fast-charging and AC charging points in each state, ranking them based on how many sites there are per electric vehicles on the roads.

Queensland will become the Australian state with the third-harshest punishment for drivers parking in disabled bays after introducing new rules that double the current fine. Under new proposed legislation, motorists caught committing the inconsiderate offence will be fined $533, twice the existing penalty of $266.

(Self) drivers wanted: Canberra autonomous test program seeking participants

Seeing Machines is seeking 30 test drivers to get involved in a new self-driving trial in Canberra. The trial is designed to improve on the company's driver-monitoring technology, which currently features in the Cadillac CT6 (pictured). Rather than focusing on the car, it'll focus on how self-driving systems impact driver behaviour.

ACT to introduce a ban on smoking in cars with kids

New legislation by the ACT Government will be handed to the Legislative Assembly today giving police the power to fine motorists who smoke in cars with child passengers on board. The new law won't be part of the demerit points scheme though, so drivers will not be capable of losing their licence due to the law.
