On this day …….. 12th of December 1935

A uniform Give Way to the Right law had been urged by the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria since 1913, but it was legal until this day in 1935. The reason the decision was made to give way to the right was because, in wet weather, the driver of a vehicle had a better chance of seeing approaching traffic though the right side window.

 

On This Day ……. 4th May 1955

Joseph Stanley Bundy, labourer, served two years and seven months’ imprisonment, pleaded guilty in Geelong City Court on this day in 1955 to a charge of having at Geelong on June 24, 1954, driven a car while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. He was fined £25, in default imprisonment for six weeks in a Geelong Gaol, and had his licence suspended for two years.

ON THIS DAY ……… 12th March 2006

On this day police charged a man with reversing further than necessary, after he drove backwards for more than 40km along one of Australia’s busiest highway. They stopped the 23 year old man on the Hume highway between Sydney and Melbourne as he was heading home to Numurkah 90km further on. He explained that reverse was the only gear in the car that worked. The man was also charged with driving without a licence.
