National Geographic's "Driving America" On Thursday's Access Utah

National Geographic

"Cars, for Americans, more than anything else represent freedom." So says Matt Hardigree, executive director of Jalopnik.com, who is featured in National Geographic Channel's new documentary film, "Driving America," which premieres on Memorial Day. The film examines how car culture has changed the way we live, work, travel and socialize; and looks into the future, including potential game changers like Tesla's electric cars. 

On Thursday's AU, car expert and "Driving America" executive producer Matt Bennett takes us on a ride past urban sprawl, drive-in movies, OJ's Bronco, Hot Wheels, and other examples of the automobile's impact on American society.
