A 1924 Buick Four proving that impossible roads are not impassable. A highway in the Leongatha district, Gippsland, Victoria, which discourages traffic congestion – a tip for city traffic experts. It shows how Flinders-Swanston street congestion could be solved by simply blowing up Prince’s Bridge and digging up Flinders street. This is an entirely new idea, suggested by the success in dealing with traffic congestion in many country towns. Keep the roads impassable and traffic congestion is automatically solved, and democracy is safe, also the stray dogs.
