NSW phone monitoring cameras going live this year

New South Wales drivers using phones behind the wheel are in the firing line, with the state to permanently roll out its phone-detection cameras. The cameras will go live later this year, after a six-month trial in which 8.5 million vehicles were checked and more than 100,000 people were caught using their smartphones on the move. The cameras are currently deployed on the M4 and Anzac Parade from January 2019, but motorists caught during the trial won't be fined.

UberAir flying taxis could come to Sydney, Melbourne

Ride-sharing giant Uber could be bringing its high-flying uberAIR service to Sydney and Melbourne, as the company looks for 'launch cities' to trial its latest program. Using electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOLs), uberAIR shuttles have space for up to four passengers along with "their personal bags and backpacks". The eVTOLs feature four propellers that allow them to take off from the ground vertically, and a single rotor on the tail to propel them forwards.
