Guest: David Zipper
It’s a milestone. Today, is our 600th episode! Yep – 600… and looking back to that very first episode in September, 2010, it just doesn’t seem possible that it’s been over 11 years! My heartfelt thanks to WJCU for hosting and supporting the show!
This week, we are going to talk about Vision Zero and why it is achieving its goals across the globe – except for the U.S.
When on-the-road fatalities are down 30-50% in other countries, they are up by double digits in some states here.
And, David Zipper thinks we need to get mad – really mad – to bring attention to the carnage that is happening on our roads.
