Alcohol vending machines & the Typhoon...

well i'm sure most have all heard about this....

Our 'high performance' cars are going to be power limited, speed limited, and speedo limited... yet in the near future we will be able to go to our closest Alcohol vending machine and buy as much as we like...

ah well, at least our cars are limited to 130k's.... so obviously not dangerous even under the influence...

d!ckheads....

Re: Alcohol vending machines & the Typhoon...

I hadn't heard of this, I heard they were trying to ban the ciggarette vending machines because it is too easy for minors to access them. An alcohol vending machine doesn't sound too likely to me, where did you hear about it?

Re: Alcohol vending machines & the Typhoon...

Re: Alcohol vending machines & the Typhoon...

maybe the vending machines will be limited to dispensing drinks that are only 130ml... Just to be consistent.

Re: Alcohol vending machines & the Typhoon...

Now lets see, lets slow all those killer cars down but lets allow one of the bigest health and social issues in australia (grog and the abuse of it) to be MORE freely avaliable to idiots who will drink it, go for a "scruby safe" wander and walk straight into a blood car.

Yeah, makes perfect sense.......I think

Yeah and the blood car would be speeding of course because of the studies undertaken would show that the car was doing an unavoidable speed to stop it from happening.
