The road toll for the month of April is at 45 the highest monthly figure since 2009 and the toll this year already at 137. Former racecar champion Greg Murphy joins Ryan Bridge in conversation to discuss how to improve safety on the roads. 

One of the suggestions that Greg has for Ryan first is to improve education for drivers on the road.
