Funding Transportation Projects will boost small businesses.
American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials    Washington, DC 20001
October 17, 2008 According to John Horsley, Executive Director of AASHTO, if Congress wants to support small business, create thousands of jobs at home, and stimulate economy, it should invest in more than 3,000 "ready to go" highway projects that could be under contract within next 30-90 days. Analysts estimate that for every $1 billion invested in transportation projects, approximately 35 thousand jobs are created.
NTSB Acting Chairman addresses driver distractions.
National Transportation Safety Board    Washington, DC 20594
October 17, 2008 In speech before International Symposium on Distracted Driving, Mark V. Rosenker noted that many NTSB recommendations stem from crashes involving distracted driving by commercial and school bus drivers carrying passengers and by teen drivers distracted by cell phones and teen passengers. He urged states to enact graduated driver licensing legislation that grants teens incrementally more driving authority, and prohibits use of wireless communications devices by young novice drivers.
