Previously we had to develop features twice on two different code bases, once for mobile (app and mobile web) and once for desktops.Due to resource demands, we had to make a difficult decision two years ago to stop progressing desktop and to focus on mobile, as a result our desktop was frozen in time and did not progress. Now in one single and very significant software release, we have caught up two years of missed progress on the desktop in one instant and moved to a single code base going forward. This is an incredible leap forward for our desktop users and it will accelerate our development roadmap and increase our efficiencies.”last_img read more

New legislation for left lane driving on high-speed highways

first_imgIn addition, this legislation will allow the ministry to define winter tires as those with a mountain/snowflake symbol or the M+S (mud and snow) symbol by regulation – allowing for more easily updated definitions as tire technology changes.This includes updated requirements for studded tires and traction devices such as chains.Another change will permit local governments to permit motorcycle parking within six meters of intersections with stop signs or signals as long as drivers’ views are not impeded – allowing for more efficient use of space that is not large enough for a car.There is no word yet as to when these new rules come into effect.Advertisement The Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review found there was significant public concern with slow drivers travelling in the left lane on high-speed highways, leading to driver frustration and aggressive driving behaviours.“Drivers who won’t move over can impede traffic and contribute to crashes,” writes Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone. “This new rule makes it clear who should travel in the left lane, and when, promoting safety on our highways.”The Motor Vehicle Amendment Act, 2015 clarifies that drivers are to travel in the right lane unless they are overtaking and passing another vehicle, moving left to allow traffic to merge, preparing for a left hand turn, or moving left to pass an official vehicle displaying a flashing light.- Advertisement -Drivers will be permitted to use the left-most lane if it is unsafe to use the right lane, such as if the right lane has not been ploughed or if there’s too much debris.During periods of traffic congestion when the actual travel speed drops to 50 km/h or less, drivers can use all lanes.When there is little traffic and no one is approaching from behind, a driver can also travel in the left-most lane. This was designed to allow drivers on four-lane highways in rural areas to keep a greater distance from the road sides where there may be wildlife.Advertisement Click here to read the entire Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review.last_img read more
