According to the IPART annual performance report into the state's 12 electricity and 8 gas retailers, both disconnections and complaints have significantly risen. Tim & Tracey on the sharp spike in disconnections.
An anti-vaccination group will be forced to change its name in the new year because its current name could mislead parents. Fair Trading Minister Anthony Roberts has called people like the group "nutjobs".
Why do we always blame the roads? We have a bridge across the harbour with eight straight flat lanes but look at the accidents that have occured on it. Perhaps would could start a road improvement campaign by building a second bridge but this time make it with a big curve in the middle. It can be used by all the drivers who can't drive in a straight line on the existing one without crashing into each other.
I drove my 4x4 ute to the top of Blue Rag in the Victorian High Country recently. The "road" consists of two wheel tracks, often along the top of ridges, with sheer drops down into the valleys on either side of them. The hills are near verticle with football size rocks everywhere. I even had some of the wheels lifting off the ground many times. Once there though the 360 degree views are breathtaking and well worth the effort.
I did not have any problems, I just drove according to the conditions as do the thousands who climb up there each year. It is a pity every driver did not do the same on all other roads.Greg O Monday 17 December, 2012 - 11:56 PM
