Saw a classic example of good Canberra driver training this afternoon. Learner on Southern Cross Drive near Latham, the L plate looked like what you would see on a driving school car but no signs so assuming it was a professional teacher.
Anyway said learner overtakes me whilst I am doing 60km/h in a 60km/h zone. [...]
Notice this afternoon that a camera has appeared on William Hovell Drive near Coppings Crossing Road. It is a temporary thing on a long stick with a sign stating it is a traffic monitoring camera. Only caught it out the corner of my eye so not sure if it was looking back towards the city [...]

Every six months I get a call on my mobile from what I believe to be a debt collection agency looking for a phone number for a second cousin of mine. He used to live in my parents house, and oddly shares the same first, but thankfully different last name.
I believe they have my number [...]
