Stand up and take a bow good people of Speed in Victoria. The locals have agreed to change their tiny town’s name to SpeedKills to encourage people to slow down on country roads. Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission (TAC) approached the town with an offer they couldn’t refuse, if they managed to get 10,000 Facebook users to support the name change they would donate $10,000 to the local Lions Club. Guess what ? They now have over 30,000 supporters and TAC have doubled the offer.  Even local farmer Phil Down has got into the spirit and has changed his name to Phillip Slowdown. The name change will be for one month.

Want sauce with that?
