Old smok­ing habits die hard

Herald Sun - Motoring - - News -

READ­ERS (though not read­ers of Cars­guide) will be dis­tressed to learn that no­to­ri­ous hoon and se­rial speeder Lewis Hamil­ton has re­verted to the habit for which he felt the aw­ful majesty of Vic­to­rian law (in ge­o­graph­i­cal as well as his­tor­i­cal senses).

Right-think­ing peo­ple will be ap­palled to see that hav­ing been chas­tised by the con­stab­u­lary in 2010, Mr Hamil­ton is again gra­tu­itously break­ing trac­tion in pub­lic.

Surely, rep­re­sen­ta­tions must be made to the au­thor­i­ties in Mum­bai, where the shame­ful scene pic­tured took place last week, to act as we have.

Aus­tralia has no short­age of MPs and safety ex­perts from whose views our Com­mon­wealth cousins would ben­e­fit. All will be only too pleased to take a tax­payer­funded so­journ to ex­plain the im­mense fi­nan­cial ben­e­fits of our road en­force­ment regime, sums which more than com­pen­sate for be­ing the butt of in­ter­na­tional ridicule.
