Many of us have been stopped for speeding by a police officer. It’s uncomfortable and it’s tough to know what to say or do.

But when you’re a public figure like Mitch Daniels, there’s an added layer of scrutiny.

Purdue’s President was reminded of that in the wake of a traffic stop on campus last month, and then reminded again when editorials suggested he should have asked for a ticket, rather than the warning he was given. On this edition of WBAA’s Monthly Conversation With Mitch Daniels, we’ll talk about that stop.

We’ll also delve into whether, ahead of an Indiana General Assembly session focused on fixing broken roads, he’s getting renewed criticism for spending too much of the state’s Major Moves windfall during his time as governor on new roads when the old ones needed attention.
