Dear Lifehacker, After doing my research and crunching the numbers, I’ve purchased a brand new family car — a Subaru Forester. One factor I didn’t consider is the potential toxicity of the “new car smell”. I can’t find any recent research in this area, but I wanted to know: Are 2016 cars still susceptible to the same problem? Will the new car harm my infant baby? Am I going into overdrive and worrying about a non-issue? Also, if new car smell is dangerous, how can I reduce or eliminate the risks?
Britain looks on course to leave the EU. This is having an immediate effect on markets. It will have immediate political ramifications too. David Cameron will, fairly soon, need to decide if he can continue in his role as British prime minister. Here’s what you need to know.
Dear Lifehacker, my husband recently received a final notice from SDRO for an offence from five years ago for parking his motorbike in his residential area for longer than allowed. He didn’t receive any notice on the spot and moved house soon afterward (he updated his address on the RTA website.) He never received any notice whatsoever, until now. Because it was a final notice he was no longer eligible to contest it in court.
Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable on the road. If you’re a long-time rider, chances are you’ve been involved in at least one motorcycle accident in the past. Some of them may be minor but in case of a serious accident, quick medical attention could save your life. Hornsby Shire Council has worked with emergency services agencies to provide cards to NSW motorcyclists that contain vital information for paramedics that are called out to these kind of accidents. Here’s what you need to know.
