    Ah, the speeding demographic. Perhaps NZTA could comment, but isn’t middle-aged drunk-driving on the wane due to the supposed success of efforts to make DUI socially unacceptable? Whereas the older male driver is still more likely to maintain “I’m in control, don’t tell me what speed is safe, I know how to drive to the conditions, the speed limit is for idiots who shouldn’t be allowed behind the wheel”?

    I think I/S needs content-aware GPS accelerometer-equipped AR glasses with commercial-message image-sensing pixel-replacement software. Didn't Google work with Adobe on something like this? Maybe it could also replace the heads of people he doesn't like with a big smiley.

    Last year W. Peters obliged the WOTY hunt with “cinderella-ised”. And today he gives us "irrebuttable". Which at least has the decency to be a real word.
