Voices in the Family on the psychology of drivers and driving (from the website):
It’s Monday morning on the Schuylkill expressway, and it is a very loud, frustrating parking lot. And you… well you are speaking in a language of expletives you never would say outside the comfort of your car. This behavior has become acceptable, but most of us wouldn’t dare act this way otherwise. Or would we? On the next Voices in the Family, Dr. Dan Gottlieb talks with the author of Traffic, Tom Vanderbilt about why we drive the way we do and what it says about us. Dr. Dan will also speak with Professor of Psychology at the University of Hawaii, Dr. Leon James, who specializes in traffic psychology.
