Speed Kills

Here at BrizBunny we are serious about speeding; and sometime a road safety campaign comes along that is worth mentioning. The town of Speed in North Western Victoria is now campaigning for supporters [^] on facebook to change it’s name to “SpeedKills”. All it takes is 10,000 likes.

Speed Kills

The 45 people of Speed say “Too many people are killed or injured on our country roads. We’re fed up and want to do something about it.” They now have over 28,000 likes, so it looks as though there is going to be a new landmark sign on Victoria’s roads. Head on over to facebook and check out the videos they have up with locals explaining the campaign.

Speeding British Muppet

Seeing as we have been following a bit of a Jim Henson theme recently (Mahna Mahna and Phenomenon, and Sesame Street – Country Road Credit Sequence) this seemed heaven-sent.

German Police are  seeking a repeat-offender speeding Muppet motorist.  Apparently it is not enough that the Police have a clear picture of the speeding vehicle, they need to be able to identify the driver as well.  A German police source said: “The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too.”

Speeding Muppet -

It is hard enough for the German’s to get a photo of a driver of a right-hand drive British car.  When a Muppet is put up against the windscreen were a driver would normally be in a German left-hand drive car it becomes next to impossible.

Apparently the German Police are unsure as to the identity of the “puppet”, Animal the manic drummer for The Electric Mayhem [^] on The Muppets.  Animal is not the only speeding Muppet driver of this vehicle, Grover and Ernie have also been seen.
