Why is it that everyone wants better roads to drive on, but no one wants to fix them? If only we’d build them like the German autobahns, nary a pothole there’d be … right? It may not be so simple. Kirk Steudle is the Director of the Michigan Department of Transportation and one of the foremost road experts in the country. We’ll be asking him about what it takes to build highways and byways that last, and we’ll discuss how we’re going to pay for it one way or the other. We’ll have plenty of news on tap as well including the latest car sales breakdown. Also, the long-forgotten Detroit Electric has been revived in the form of a sporty Tesla-like model. Plus, the latest news on GM’s full-size trucks: do they have what it takes to compete? Joining John McElroy in studio is co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Gary Vasilash from Automotive Design & Production.
