E151 - How old is too old to drive

E151 - How old is too old to drive

December 12, 2019

How old is too old to drive? We’ve talked about it in the past but we will get more into it with Maile Gray, executive director of Drive Smart Colorado. Kansas City transit is going free. When you think you might be in a police chase fill up first. If you have a KIA, lock that car or get a club because thieves are looking for you. We answer some viewer mail. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

 For the first time ever we have been denied for an interview request. The story is about how DOT’s around the country are selling your personal data for money. A practice that many think is wrong and should stop. The cannonball run has a new speed record. No, not by Burt Renyolds. And we open the listener mail bag.

149 - The water on planes is so unsafe, you shouldn’t even wash your hands with it.

November 26, 2019

There is a new study that finds that the water on board most major airlines that is served to passengers is so unsafe that you shouldn’t even wash your hands with it. The shocking discovery was made by Hunter College’s Food Policy Center and Diet-Detective.com, who investigated the water quality of 23 different US airlines. I interviewed Dr Charles Platkin, the Executive Director of Hunter College’s NYC Food Policy Center to talk more about this. Tesla has a futuristic truck with a major demonstration fail. What are the best large and medium sized airports in the country? And we open the mail bag. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

E148 - If the driver is distracted then any accident could be argued an on-purpose

November 21, 2019

Should we increase fines for distracted driving or install more red light cameras and take the revenue to improve intersection safety? That is the argument we discuss after reading an article suggesting more red light cameras makes cities safer. Some people should not start off a phone conversation with the “hey, it’s me”. Why were you speeding sir? I was trying to get home after spending time with my mistress. And the regular guy should be off on holidays. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

E147  - Is it time for public trasit to be free?

E147 - Is it time for public trasit to be free?

November 14, 2019

What would it look like if every city had free transit? Would you ride it more often? What would it cost? Is it a worthwhile idea? One person who has looked into this idea is Rosalie Ray. Rosalie is a Ph.D. student in Urban Planning at Columbia University. She received her B.A. in Economics from Smith College and her Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from UCLA. Before going to UCLA, she worked as an economist at the U.S. Department of Transportation. Rosalie’s past research explored the prospects of fare-free transit in the United States and that includes a chapter in the book… Free Public Transit: And Why We Don't Pay to Ride Elevators. Is that a chicken on your shoulder or are you just driving drunk?  And this has to be one of the most head scratching stories we have ever talked about. The tale of the cat switcheroo. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

We have a brief followup to the big CDOT story from last week. In breaking news… driving while eating can be distracting. If you want people to stop riding a scooter on the sidewalk then put them in jail for 2 months. In sailing news….. Don’t have loud sex on a cruis ship or risk getting kicked off. One gas station owner converted his store from gas to electric but it still isn’t an ideal situation. Do you have what it takes to be a parking lot attendant?

Is the Colorado Department of Transportation is total disarray? That is what the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle is asking. We speak with the publisher of the paper and author of the piece Chuck Bonniwell all about the story and meteoric rise to power by someone who seems unqualified to hold the position of executive director. Also, the world’s most expensive parking space, new pothole technology and a great April fools joke idea. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

Jayson tells the tale of the trip, Spirit Airlines, drinking on planes, the Tampa airport. Alos, how space flights are affecting commercial aircraft and what is being done to make it better. How about a time out instead of a ticket? The transit authorities driver and operator shortage is going to be a growing problem if they don’t get ahead of it.

October 10, 2019

 It is a short episode today with guest co-host Nicole Brady. Is there a secret meaning when someone flushes the toilet on an airplane twice? Kids are wrecking airplane bathroom rolls of toilet paper all in the name of a funny video. Would you like to know where the kids are on the plane before you buy your seat? Florida man doesn’t like these scooters. And where do you draw the line when it comes to changing the colors of the traditional crosswalk? All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

Do you want a vanity license plate but the word is so popular someone already has it? There are 30 names being released by the state of Colorado that you can bid on and win that plate you’ve always wanted. How does it work and why are they doing it. Amtrak is doing away with the dining car because of millenials. As much as Tesla wants to convince you that their cars can drive by themselves, they really can’t. SuperShuttle is done in Denver. Are more cities next? And the worst excuse for speeding in the history of speeding. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.
