Oxford City Council Mandates CCTV Cameras In Taxies by 2015

Cybertect Not only video (235 comments)

That's as may be in Helsinki for video surveillance. We've become rather accustomed to that in the UK.

The line that's being crossed here (not particularly well highlighted in the summary) is that they will be making *audio* recordings of the interior of the taxi too.

Fuel Efficiency and Slow Driving?

Cybertect Old Saabs (1114 comments)

IIRC the old 'jelly mould' Saabs of the 1960s (and many of the later ones) are designed to coast in neutral.

The freewheel automatically disengages the clutch when you take your foot off the accelerator pedal, like that on a bicycle. It was a feature originally something to do with lubricating the 2-stroke engines fitted in the earliest models, not a bug or poor driving technique.

A friend of mine who used to live near Whitby, Yorkshire (which has its fair share of hills) found it rather alarming at first, but got used to it.
