New Hampshire Primary Results, Distracted Driving, and Prairie Dogs

Jan 11, 2012

Wednesday, January 11

We review the results of the New Hampshire primary with New Hampshire Public Radio reporter Dan Gorenstein.  We’ll look at the future for the Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman campaigns.

Then, what should we do about  what Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood calls an epidemic: distracted driving? We talk with U. of U. professor David Strayer who has studied the effects of cell phone use on drivers; and with Rob Reynolds, Executive Director of FocusDriven, a group that advocates for the elimination of cell phone use while driving.

In our last segment, we introduce you to a new program designed to help developers comply with requirements to protect Utah’s prairie dogs.  We’ll conclude the program with Don Falvey, Chairman of the Panoramaland Conservation Council.
