Should we change the way we grade crash tests? The Auto Professor, Dr Norma Hubele says yes. I talk to Dr Hubele all about her auto grades and what cars are the safest when it comes to being in a crash. There are things you aren’t supposed to do like you aren’t supposed to tug on Superman’s cape,you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull off the mask of the Lone Ranger and don’t joke around with a flight attendant. And I want to share a Bud with Lloyd Boyd. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

Today I welcome guest co-host Nicole Brady to the show to talk transportation. There are some stiff fines for some common offenses in Wales, UK. The Tampa airport is now allowing you to visit their shops and restaurants behind the secure area but there may be a hidden bonus some may take advantage of. I speak with the connected vehicle company Geotab about their latest survey looking at the commute times between vehicle drivers and transit riders. The findings are quite surprising. And we open the Driving You Crazy mailbag. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

Buying a used car has changed dramatically over the past few years. One new company, Carvana, is changing the process even more. I speak with Jenni Stanford esq. All about Carvana and the changes in the business of used car sales. If you are too busy to pay attention to the in flight safety video then just get out now. How did that man survive stowing away in the wheel well of that plane? And are you excited to see me or is that a one-foot alligator in your yoga pants?

Could you give up your car and only ride a scooter? Should you just rent one or lay down a few more bucks and buy one? We speak with Josh Frisby, the owner of the website Electric Scooter Insider (https://www.electricscooterinsider.com/) to talk all things scooter. Parking officers chalking your tire to see how long you’ve been parking is now a violation of the constitution. How could that be? I’ll explain. Morning meteorologist Lisa Hidalgo joins me to talk about her nickname for me that one viewer in particular doesn’t like. And how many miles is too many to drive on just three tires?

Guest host Nicole Brady joins the show today to talk about a story of an elderly couple who hasn’t driven their car for three years because they can’t get an airbag replacement. Jayson has some thoughts about the 2019 Denver Auto show. Potholes are horrible this time of year and one man in Texas was so fed up with his city not fixing them he did it himself. Congestion pricing is coming to New York City. Would you pay $230 a month to drive into the city? What town is next? Also from New York, the horse drawn carriages are now off 59th Street and in the park. That will solve that problem that didn’t need fixing. And we are going for a new world record after hearing what two guys in Boston did to earn one. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

Would you let someone borrow your car while you are away on a trip? There is a new app called Drift that does just that, paying you to lend your car to other travelers. We speak with General Manager of Drift Alex David all about this new service. How did Colorado’s DOT handle all the avalanches that shut down Colorado’s mountains for a few weeks? Jayson says not good. Most passengers get on a plane with all their clothes on, most passengers. It is good luck to toss a coin in a fountain, not into the engine of a plane. We dig into the mail bag to answer an upset listeners question about a long construction traffic jam,. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

How close are we to a strike by flight attendants who work for Frontier Airlines? We talk with Sara Nelson, President of the Association of Flight Attendants - CWA about where negotiations stand right now, the potential for a worker rally in Denver next week and should tipping be allowed on airplanes. When you are the leading expert in impaired driving you probably don’t need to do any field study about it. Why fill the potholes when you can slow down and drive around them? And a little diddy bout Jack and Tara, two UK kids doing the best they can. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.
