#0548: Road Rage Explained

Original Air Date: 11.26.2005

   Best Moment

What’s up with road rage in America? This week, a simple (and possibly convincing) explanation regarding why we lose our road cool. Liz gets a cure for her chronic backseat driving, while Ann thinks her radio may be trying to drive her crazy – does she need an owner's manual or a padded room? Michael had planned the perfect date on a beach – until a rogue wave put out the fire and swamped the car. Plus, Murali gets some answers to the enigma of his haunted Honda. That, and plenty more, in this week’s show.
