E132 - The little guy inside would say keep on driving

July 17, 2019

There is trouble in drivers education. That from Volvo and the Harris Poll so we invited Jim Nichols, Senior Manager of Product, Technology and Brand Communications at Volvo to explain what is wrong with drivers ed as well as the future of cars and transportation. How do you get drivers to put down their phones? Make the fine super high like they just did in Queensland. Tossing a snake at the driver is one way to steal a car. We have a leading candidate for mom of the year. We play what would you do if an armored truck full of cash spilled it on the highway in front of you. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

Joseph is back from his cross country adventure and has the tales to prove it. What are the unspoken rules of public transportation around the world? The hearse in the HOV with the dearly departed in the back should not have been pulled over and I have the law behind me. There is a guy who tried to get his kids to fly free but was caught and he blames Spirit for not letting his kids on. And finally pump number 2 is getting its day in the sun.

If you weren’t sure, those electric scooters are vehicles and you can get a DUI for riding one while drunk. We have the moment the first woman in Albuquerque earned a scooter DUI.

Guest host Nicole Brady looked at the favorite new safety features in cars and the safest cities in the nation to drive around.

Another road trip and thoughts along the way. Kids don’t care who you are, keep your stinky bare feet off my seat. What kind of music makes you drive better? Taylor Swift was surprisingly helpful. The world’s largest cruise ship could be coming to an ocean near you. There is only a few reasons I can think of why you need to wash your car while in your neighborhood completely naked.

Have you wanted to go camping but, like me, you don’t want to sleep on the ground? You will be interested in what Jon Moran, creator of NativeCamperVans has to say. Jon takes us through the camper van lifestyle and what they are all about. Distracted driving is a problem obviously, but who checks their phone while they are driving to see if they have a match on Tinder? Conor Day with Root insurance joins m,e to talk about their latest distracted driving survey and how distractions can be intensified while on a road trip. Also, my tale of driving an RV from Denver to Miami for Superbowl 33. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

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.
