Porsche 911 Turbo, Lamborghini Aventador crash in Sydney storms

Two expensive supercars have crashed within a few kilometres of each other in Sydney, after their respective drivers allegedly lost control during the record-breaking storms gripping New South Wales. A black Porsche 911 Turbo – which is priced from around $400,000 before on-road costs – crashed in the suburb of Greystanes after witnesses alleged the driver lost control of the vehicle and ended up on the wrong side of the road before hitting a truck.

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.

NSW makes phone payments legal behind the wheel, as phone monitoring cameras go live

New South Wales (NSW) drivers will legally be able to pay for parking and drive-through meals using a mobile phone without fear of a $344 fine. State laws have today been revised so anyone touching their phone to make a payment while they're stationary and off the road in a carpark, drive-through, or driveway, will be safe from penalty. Drivers will also be allowed to access their digital licence for a NSW Police officer.
