You can't have everything. Where would you put it?


This is what constitutes a little side street here in Hobart. A 40 km limit for a street ten metres long, that's the kind of thinking that will put this town on top again!

Apparently, in the 1830s, Hobart was in danger of losing visitations by Royal Navy vessels due to the large number of sailors contracting venereal diseases while on shore leave in the port. It's been said that little has changed since...

I don't think that the average hoon exceeds 40 k's when leaving 2 to 3 inches of rubber on the road.
I think they could replace the speed sign with a give way or at least a stop sign.

I love your title. It is a perfecto :-)

Roddy, bastard hoons!

KL, I have Steven Wright to thank for that.
