      Tech savvy world

      March 2015

      Mainstream media tend to jump at the opportunity to cause hysteria if an “unroadworthy” heavy vehicle has been caught out somewhere. But I defy anybody to provide proof that the heavy vehicles on our roads are in a poor condition. It’s a dangerous generalisation and extremely counter-productive.

      October 2014

      In a recent crash, four young people lost their lives on the Pacific Highway in the early hours of the morning, as a newly licensed driver overtook a B-double across double lines, and headed into the path of a truck coming from the opposite direction.
