E214 - I‘m not ready to have a car drive me around just yet

Imagine this, a world where autonomous cars will match or exceed human safety by 2024 and the technology will grow so quickly that just 25 years later human driving will be outlawed. That is the prediction from Dr James Jeffs, technology Analyst at IDTechEx who joins me to talk all about it. Also, why are the baggage carousels so far away from the gate? All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

E211 - The best way to describe it is riding in a giant toaster

August 25, 2021

The company EasyMile just launched the largest fleet of fully autonomous, electric shuttle buses in the country at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. I wanted to know where we are in the future of vehicle autonomy so I invited onto the show Sharad Agarwal, North American Senior Vice President for the company EasyMile. We talk all about the EZ 10 and where we are going with autonomy in the future. Also I answer an angry listener email about why the Denver Broncos get a police escort from their team facility to the airport. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

E209 - How our DOT in Colorado faked a mud slide just to detour traffic

E209 - How our DOT in Colorado faked a mud slide just to detour traffic

August 10, 2021

Would a state agency that is tasked with giving out at times life saving information send out fake information just to detour traffic? The answer is pretty close to yes. I look at the story of the Colorado DOT sending out a fake message about a mudslide that never happened just to get the traffic apps to reroute traffic off a road the DOT didn’t want drivers using. I rant about this and invite Denver7 polictical reporter Meghan Lopezt to weigh in on the story after she got the runaround from various officials. Also someone wrote to our newsroom saying working for Southwest is like “slave labor”. I go through that email as well. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

E208 - You may say that I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one

August 4, 2021

On the show, I speak with Ben Schmidt, the Co-founder and CEO of a company called Road-botics. They partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to look at the condition of the roads in 20 major US Cities. The interesting part of this study, more than just the data is the new way they collected the data. They used smartphone cameras mounted to the windshields of vehicles and then they used Artificial Inelegance to analyze it. A quick followup on the space talk from a few episodes back, plus, one of the good guys in the traffic world is calling it quits. All that and more on the Driving You Crazy Podcast.

E207 - Will long term telecommuting affect long term traffic congestion

July 29, 2021

We all know covid change the way we work but has it changed it forever and changed the way we commute? I speak with Dr. Patricia Mokhtarian, Professor of civil and environmental engineering at Georgia Tech. We will be talking about telecommuting and what it means to commuting now and in the future. Also, the Employee Traffic Reduction Program through the state of Colorado is dead and traffic reports in one place are no longer going to be on the radio. Is TV next?

E205 - The satellite dish only blocks my view when I make right turns

July 14, 2021

Air travel has really gone downhill since covid. I recall my trip to Florida and how Disney needs to update how we all get around. The EU wants to stop selling gas or diesel cars by 2035. Should drivers who own back fines for traffic violations and court costs be allowed amnesty?  And no, you shouldn’t drive with a satellite dish on your hood.
