Dawn on the Autobahn explores traffic signs of the world, and Mickey’s got a thing about dealer stickers.

Dawn regales the panel with strange traffic signs around the world, and initiates a savage game of Punch-Buggy between Mickey and Dave. We learn the history of cobblestones, and why it makes driving in downtown Savannah a challenge. Our guest Trent makes the case for hatchbacks. Dealership stickers grind Mickey’s gears. We continue our investigation of listeners’ worst car experiences, and learn about the early days of automotive insurance.
