Aussie charged for driving outbackward
After 25-mile drive, he explained that reverse was only gear that worked

SYDNEY, Australia - Police charged an Australian driver with "reversing further than necessary" after he traveled backward for more than 40 kilometers (25 miles) along one of the country's busiest highways.

Police said the man was stopped on the Hume Highway which runs between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne at Benalla, about 200 kilometers northeast of Melbourne.

Police said the man told them reverse was the only gear in the car that worked and that he was traveling home to the small regional town of Numurkah, 90 kilometers (56 miles) farther on his way.

He was also charged with unlicensed driving and driving an unregistered car and is to appear in court later this year. (external - login to view)
It must be boring travelling in big, empty countries such as Australia, America or Canada. Especially Australia - largely flat, with nothing but sand and desert and those annoying plants that makes your legs itch like crazy whenever you brush up against one. So I suppose driving backwards is one way to relieve the monotony.

In Britain (the same size as Oregon) driving is a much more pleasant experience.

And can be done by dinner. But then what?
Not really.

It takes 4 hours to drive the 250 miles from Lancashire to Glasgow.

It must takes about 7 hours to travel in a train from Manchester to London.

Travelling from Cornwall to Inverness, almost one end of the island to the other, would probably take almost all day.
