You know you’ve done it: Sat alone in your car, one hand on the radio knob, but unable to turn it off because you’re so caught up in the story you’re listening to. In public radio, we call them “Driveway Moments,” and we’re (almost) sorry if we’ve ever made you late for an appointment or got your neighbors whispering.

For Reason #25 to love WNIJ, General Manager Staci Hoste shares her most memorable driveway moment and invites you to share yours on our Facebook page or Twitter.
