Massachusetts drivers are hitting the road a lot more often than they have since the start of the pandemic. But with the added traffic has come a rise in speeding and car accidents, prompting Somerville legislators to propose safeguards such as automated traffic camera enforcement.

Stacey Beuttell, executive director of WalkBoston, and Mary Maguire, director of public and government affairs for AAA Northeast, joined Talking Politics host Adam Reilly to discuss the changing patterns, what automated enforcement might look like and the potential pitfalls.

Plus, the Massachusetts Senate is considering a proposal that would allow undocumented immigrants to obtain state driver’s licenses. GBH News Politics Editor Peter Kadzis and Boston Business Journal Digital Editor Steph Solis came on the show to discuss the bill, a push by State House staffers to unionize and the new city tourism ads unveiled this week in Boston.
