Happy Easter from Driveanotherday.com

Look i know it’s Easter Sunday and were chasing down the back end of Easter now but on behalf of the hardworking team (of one) here, have a happy Easter.

Here’s hoping you’ve got plenty of choccy eggs and plenty of fuel on board and don’t have to fill up at current wallet burning prices any time soon…

R31 GT Wagon – you are clear to land on runway 3…

Ahh bless the hard working lads at Iron Chef Imports and their always amusing Facebook page. Once again they’ve delved deep into the current offerings of importable Japanese automotive excellence and come up with a true winner.

Yes that is a fairly unexciting R31 GT Passage Wagon above (well unexciting for me but that blocky mid 80’s lunchbox on wheels look might just light a fire under you or deep within your cockles who knows.)

Guess who you’re sharing the road with?

I don’t think there’s been a week on the roads where I haven’t seen someone chatting on their mobile/cell phone while driving, figuring ‘no one will see me doing this, surely..’

Surely not. Not after all those campaigns and hefty fines, loss of points, huge police focus..

Using a mobile phone or other device, like a Smart Watch, while driving can be distracting, increasing your chance of being involved in a crash or near crash. Looking at and touching devices at the same time is particularly distracting. -Vicroads
