Salt Lake City, UT – There's one place in every city where people of different ages, race, politics, religion and temperament get together on a daily basis. Really, it's small wonder that our highways our such mess. In his latest book, the writer Tom Vanderbilt set out to answer just how it is human nature has shaped traffic - and how it in turns shapes us. Friday, he joins Doug to answer those questions. They'll take on a few of the unanswerable ones too - like why it is the other lane always moves faster. (Rebroadcast)
