America clamps down on highway monsters

After a decade in which they have steadily gained ascendancy on America's roads, the four-wheel drive suburban mega-cars known by the ugly acronym SUV - sports utility vehicle - are suddenly under attack. You name it, they are guilty of it: they are too big, too profligate, too expensive, but most of all, too dangerous.

Letter: Off-roaders who ride roughshod over others

TIM Stevens, information officer for the Land Access and Recreation Association, argues that because national parks are for all to enjoy it therefore follows that those who want to enjoy them from behind the window of a Land Rover, off the road on the high moor, have as much right to do so as walkers. What nonsense.

Thousands of off-road drivers face ban from national park trails

To Some, it is a status symbol. But to the guardians of some of Britain's most beautiful countryside, the four-wheel-drive off-roader is the most reviled of modern-day nuisances. Now, in the national parks of Britain, it has met its match.

Land Rover inundated with Solihull job enquiries

Land Rover was yesterday inundated with 1,500 job applications in less than eight hours after it advertised 300 vacancies at its Solihull factory in the West Midlands.

Letter: By car to hospital

Sir: You report (19 September) on the problems facing John Prescott as he seeks to reduce car usage and increase the take-up of public transport. There is one option you did not discuss. Simply reintroduce the blanket 50 miles per hour speed limit for all roads. This will reduce CO2 production as cars are more fuel-efficient at 50 than at 70; discourage the purchase of large, powerful cars as their performance "advantages" are nullified, and encourage the use of public transport as journey times are slightly increased and hence alternatives become more attractive.

Rover rolls out a revamped image in corporate makeover

And you thought inner cities were bad?

This is a village story. One evening last December Mrs Heather Edyvean-Driscoll, 49, of Kites Hardwick in Warwickshire, was approaching the pretty hamlet of Dunchurch, near Rugby, behind the wheel of her Land- Rover Discovery. According to a following taxi driver, Mrs E-D was driving "erratically" when - all of a sudden - she overshot a bend, hit a bollard and careered into The Old Forge, a nearby cottage. The airbag on the driver's side inflated, leaving an encumbered Mrs E-D to guess what her next move should now be.

earthly Charlotte and the freedom fighter

It's 7.45am and there's a thick layer of frost on the church hall roof. Buried beneath the duvet, clocking up my fifth hour of sleep, I'm leading a guerrilla resistance operation against some faceless but evil Nazi types in the hills around Petra. I've just pushed a chunk of Nabataean crow-steps on to a convoy of jeeps when the phone rings.
