Overdrive Program – 23 November 2013

Hello and welcome to Overdrive, where we embrace the glories of motoring and transport.

This sound file is a full program. Other segments of the program such as the road test are also on the web site.

And in this program we have the latest news including:

  • Mandating Safety Technology for Light Commercial Vehicles
  • ‘Smart’ road barriers that notify emergency services when there has been an accident, and
  • Creating a tribute to a road intersection

We chat to the owners of a motorcycle museum in Australia which has 900 bikes on display.

We road test the Fiat Freemont, a surprisingly big car from the Italian manufacturer.

And in our panel discussion with Errol Smith and Brian Smith we ponder how things in nature might give us ideas about better transport systems

So if you would like to hear segments of the show or past episodes, make a comment or ask us a question send us an email to

So let’s get the program going, first the news.
