Overdrive Program – 8 March 2014

Welcome to Overdrive, a program that ponders on issues to do with motoring and transport.

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

And in this program we have the latest news including:

  • An American consumer group picks their top car of the year and it’s not your typical vehicle
  • The world’s first mega-car and
  • Britain’s most expensive parking spot


We discuss the new rules in NSW that allow motorbikes to filter between cars

We road test the Mitsubishi Triton, you’d be surprised on how many utes are on the road

And in our panel discussion with Brian Smith and Errol Smith we look at a range of subjects including:

  1. California court rules it is okay for drivers to check mobile
  2. Dubai Wants To Ban Poor People From Owning Cars To Clear Traffic
  3. Reindeer get glow in the dark antlers
