Texting, eating, watching movies: Australian drivers reveal their dirty habits

Queenslanders are the most distracted drivers in Australia, with two-thirds admitting they engage in dangerous behaviours behind the wheel. That's a contrast with New South Wales, where 46 per cent of motorists claim they've never done anything risky on the road. The latest Finder Safe Driving Report reveals 11 million motorists engage in risky or dangerous behaviours while driving, with 20 per cent of the 1800 people surveyed admitting they've answered a call or text on their phone.

With technology continuously evolving, it's sometimes hard to keep up with laws and the way they adapt to modern technology.

Top Gear too loud for Gold Coast

The BBC's Top Gear television program has been denied the opportunity to drive a V8 Supercar around a Gold Coast driver training centre due to "issues related to noise". News Limited reports a plan to have Jeremy Clarkson, one of the program's three hosts, drive an Xbox-sponsored V8 Supercar around the Norwell-based Holden Driving Centre's 2km circuit has fallen through due to issues surrounding noise restrictions.
