Distracted Driving; RTA Redesign Update; Arts Inclusivity

Featured Audio

Millions of drivers will be on the road this weekend traveling during the long Memorial Day weekend. What are the chances some will be looking at their phones, fussing with their radio dials or otherwise not paying attention? Concerns over distracted driving are driving efforts to toughen laws and penalties in Ohio and one of the chief proponents is the governor.  We'll talk with a representative of the Ohio Department of Transportation about a recently released report on distracted driving and recommendations to make the roads safer.      Later, tell the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority how it should remake its service map.  And a conversation about making the arts more inclusive.
