Call for tougher penalties on driver phone use
Make all drivers caught breaking the law go back to driver school and have to go for licence again from scratch.
Instant double demerit points and a trip the local ICU to see the results of some of the accidents caused by these dangerous drivers.
Police research and long term studies clearly show that increasing the penalty doesn’t prevent crime. That’s because the ‘crims’ don’t think they will get caught, therefore the penalty isn’t a concern to them. What is a far more effective crime preventative measure is to increase the chance of getting caught, by putting more police on the roads.
The rule is eyes on road all the time.
Eden to Edrom swim
Well done. Maybe this could start a shore to shore yearly swim.
A fantastic swim, but ever since I read about this, all I could think of was, sharks.

Wow, now that is brave!
Whenever it was calm across the bay, my mum (Tugboat Annie) used to say it was a "swim to Edrom day" but I don't know anyone who actually did it.
How awesome is this. Congratulations to the swimmers, huge effort and awesome way to end the year!
Cancer meds for PBS
I can only say that's absolutely wonderful for sufferers and their loved ones to have that extra burden taken off them.
All I can say is how do they get to that ridiculous price in the first place. Big pharma taking advantage of the sick.
