Overdrive Program – 5 April 2014

Welcome to Overdrive, a program that ponders and sometimes prattles on about issues of motoring and transport.
This audio file features a full program. Other extended segments of the program, including the interview, road test and panel discussion are also available on the website.
In this program we take a look at the following news stories from around the world:
1. The US to make rear view cameras compulsory
2. Russia car sales rocked by Crimea troubles
3. Road rage is the new facial recognition frontier and
4. Freezing weather shortens electric car distances
In local news, we talk to senior Toyota Executive Tony Cramb about creating a relationship with the customer, particularly using social media and we road test the Isuzu MU-X.
Our panel discussion with Brian Smith and Errol Smith discusses unusual motoring and transport subjects including a unique protest in Lisbon, a typical American approach to road works and car names as a pejorative expression.
