[rec.autos.tech] rec.autos.driving -- CALL FOR VOTES

tom@mims-iris.waterloo.edu (Tom Haapanen) (01/02/90)

CALL FOR VOTES:  Create rec.autos.driving (not moderated).

VOTING PERIOD:  Jan. 2 1990 to Jan. 23 1990.


This unmoderated group will be used for discussions about driving
cars and trucks, and about related issues.  These issues include,
but are not limited to, driving techniques and habits, speed limits
and speeding, police radar and radar detectors, roads and routes,
driver education and training, and the use of headlights, foglights
and scanners.

The existing group rec.autos will be used for discussions about
cars and trucks themselves, except for technical issues, which are
discussed in rec.autos.tech.  Discussions about autosport are held
in rec.autos.sport.
