    No turbos or superchargers for you for 3 years. ...or v8+... or some v6's if they're "evil cars". Hillarious that the gun control analogies people make towards cars are actually being implemented. ...only in Australia. Probably UK next.

    From 1 July 2007, the penalty for driving a high powered vehicle will be three demerit points and a maximum fine of approximately $1100.

    Yikes. I guess if it "saves one life" it's worth it.

    I guess I need a concealed car permit if I park it in a garage. Maybe they could ban assault cars; if they have a gas tank bigger than 20 gallons, a wind deflector on their hood, tinted windows, alloy wheels, ...

    Ten gallons, Sitrep. Ten gallons.

    I've got a lifted Cherokee with big tires and tinted windows.

    Look out! I'm a danger to society! :what:
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    You think this is funny? We already have car control. Try driving without registration or license. Try buying a new car without airbags or a seatbelt.

    Smaller cars to meet CAFE that crumple in accidents.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I don't mind that they come with them; I just don't like the laws that mandate their use.
