    Why driving in the US is better than at home (Australia)

    Good. Anyone not wearing a seatbelt or using their phones deserves the book. Driving home has been fine the past few weeks, having a branded work car does wonders to the sensibility of this driver. Yep, turning at a standard intersection. Funny you mention it now, didn't see a single right...

    Why driving in the US is better than at home (Australia)

    I enjoyed everything except for the Dragon Den part. That was waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy too drawn out and boring. Enjoyed Damian Lewis and the other segments. Great to have it back! 7/10

    Coolest police car ever!

    You know what's easier than making a page and worrying about unmarked cars? Not breaking the law. Anyway, majority of unmarked cars in inner-urban Melbourne are detectives who generally don't have a radar licence or the ability to hand out on the spot fines. They can pull you over for speeding...
