    If you ever feel like grumbling about the "nanny state" situation with Australian road laws (ie arbitrary drink driving test, strict license laws, compulsory motor cycle helmets - consider the alternative.

    A total of 463 people have died due to traffic collisions in Thailand over the past week, as the country’s notoriously lethal roads were once again swamped with drunk drivers during the new year period.

    The country’s Road Safety Directing Centre said the death toll for what police call “Seven Dangerous Days” was up by 40 from last year’s count of 423 and just shy of the record of 478 set in 2017.

    Drink-driving was listed as the cause of 40% of the 3,791 collisions reported between 27 December and 2 January. During that period 3,892 people were injured, down from 4,005 last year. Although this year’s death toll was up, the collision count was down slightly, from 3,841.

    It isn't the Chinese President who has resigned - it's the Chinese President of the World Bank - Jim Yong Kim who has just resigned.

    If the highway doesn't have a minimum speed limit you could probably contest that one.

    Try citing lower emissions or driving a car in "limp" mode :D

    In the 70's the US set a limit of 55mph (90k's) to save fuel as a result of the oil crisis.

    German Consumer Prices Fell Sharply in December; Rose 1.9% in 2018 -Destatis
    https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/s...an-consumer-prices-fell-sharply-in-december-r
    Statistics have shown that Germany recorded its most sluggish annual growth rate since 2013 last year, while industrial production slumped in November for the second straight month, though Destatis said Tuesday that the economy has likely--narrowly--escaped a technical recession.
