Your Worst Driving Moments, Jewish Culture, and Sports Monday: Houston Matters for Monday, April 7, 2014

Come on. Admit it. We’ve all done it. That moment when you inadvertently cut someone off on the highway. Or had your left-turn blinker on as you turned right.

Come on. Admit it. We’ve all done it. That moment when you inadvertently cut someone off on the highway. Or had your left-turn blinker on as you turned right. Or found yourself in an endless series of U-turns because you couldn’t find the exit your GPS insists is there.

We all have those moments. And yet, more than half of us are convinced we’re better than the average driver here in Houston, which mathematically, just doesn’t wash.

We’ve spent quality time on Houston Matters bemoaning Houston drivers and traffic. On this edition of the program, we want to know if you’ll admit your “worst driving moment,” when YOU were the one others yelled at, or when you experienced embarrassment behind the wheel.

We welcome your examples, and talk with Houston Public Media transportation reporter Gail Delaughter, and Jeff Balke of the Houston Press, who wrote last year about the “Ten Worst People in Houston Traffic.”

Also: Passover is a week away, so – just as we have done with other ethnicities here in Houston – we’ll examine Jewish history and culture here in H-town. We’ll welcome your questions for Michael Duke, Assistant Editor of the Jewish Herald-Voice, Houston’s long-running Jewish community newspaper, and Marilyn Hassid, Assistant Executive Director of the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston.

And: We discuss the latest developments in Houston sports with CultureMap Houston sports columnist MK Bower.
