So, I'll be at the meeting place at 9:30. Obviously there'll be a few stragglers and that's ok with me. It's looking like there might be a bit of rain around on the day, we'll see and I'll be there regardless.
Stage 2 water restrictions come into force next Wednesday...
Car washing at home is allowed.
Oddly they say you can only wash once a month, but don't pose any limits on when during that month you can wash your car. I like this idea.

Some other troubling things in that report (and i actually read the whole thing )
*Section 6.5.3: The report endorses the view that because the ACT has legislation that allows multiple offences to be enforced from a single act (combined speed/red light cameras can sting you for both offences, should they occur), that should P2P and fixed site speed offences be committed (you do 110km/h past the entry camera (infringement) and 109km/h point to point (averaged infringement)), that they be treated as 2 offences, not a single speeding offence.
*That the ACT represents an "ideal opportunity" to develop networked P2P cameras for the world. i.e an entire region can be covered with cameras and each could represent a start and end point with averaged speeds calculated between any camera in the network.. (Google SPECS3 network enforcement in the UK)
*Another gem... "Whilst the additional procedures to process P2P offences are minor they will require operator training. The importance of this training should not be underestimated due to the potential for the P2P system to incorrectly match vehicles – this could be due to misreads or the duplication of licence plates between States."
Finally, the whole thing is fukken horseshiit. It constantly mentions "studies have shown ......... " without actually referencing a single fuking one. Case in point. Section 5.1.3 on Mobile Speed Camera Vans has a sentence that simply states "A previous study into the effectiveness of the mobile speed cameras showed that speeds were reduced and crashes were also reduced." With no reference to the study..
THIS COUNTRY IS FUKKEN STUFFED!!!!
