Technology

With Toyota developing a fuel cell tech that for the 1st time seems to be a true alternative to gasoline as the fuel for the avg vehicle, and their release of the tech to the public for free, what kind of talks are going on in the govt around ensuring that the infrastructure is in place to give America a real chance to move away from gasoline powered cars over the next decade? Has there been any discussion around how we can set an example for countries like China on how to make this transformation a reality?The private sector has done their part to meet the challenge will the govt do its part

Secretary of Transportation,
I'm requesting my Congressional Representatives to Launch Investigations on Federal Gasoline taxes, where have decades of those Highway/Road funds gone, reports indicate our highways and bridge infrastructure are failing due to age and the failure to maintain the system, I'm asking YOU sir for an explanation.

why does the 'public' have any say or opinion in the trucking industry issues? Nothing you do will ever be ok with everyone involved but you are not there to be popular, you are there to help make the highways safer. I agree with CSA/SMS I think it is a great program and may need some fine tuning, like removing the load securement basic from the maintenance basic. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. As a fleet assistant for a trucking company you have my support!

The trucking industry must and should be regulated. If not they will kill each other and the reat of us too. They all want faster and heavier trucks which endanger others on the highways and tear up roads faster than we can fix them. Can you imagine how long a highway would last without truck traffic? Nearly forever. And who hasn't been driving along on the freeway at the speed limit and have a huge heavily loaded truck whiz by? Truckers used to be the knights of the road. Now they are the demons because of deregulation of the industry.

I hope you can justify the actions of the TSA when they force a 95 year old "cancer disabled" woman to remove her adult diaper for a "pat down".
Anyone hear the ACLU getting involved???

Not that it occurred solely on your watch but can someone explain where all the Federal Taxes collected at "the pump" designated for Highway maintenance went??

Stop having Govt provide funding for projects that should be built and operated by a more efficient private industry. De-Fund the EPA and remove all restrictive rules and regulations and allow Private Industry to rebuild our economy

mass transit new york
youcanteatmoney Posted 7 years ago
transit authorities and commuter rail agencies all face huge funding gaps as a result of falling state tax revenues. state and the federal government must must provide adequate funding streams for mass transit. as far back as 1954 to the present a disproportional 80% of federal money for transportation is directed towards roads and bridges with the remaining 20% directed to mass transit. of that 20% mass transit operations are lucky to see 1% of the total allocated, the other 19% going to infrastructure. it is a battle we cannot loose if we are to save and create jobs and the much needed mass transit service. what can be done by elected officials and the public to correct this inequity ?

High speed efficient rail service would be a great benefit to America. Do we really need all those planes in the air all the time? I think gov't should HELP build the necessary infrastructure. Why not? We subsidize the airlines all the time with airpports, controllers,etc. Why not spend some money on rail systems? They can be nearly as fast in some instances and cheaper to operate. they would also use far less fuel. Just don't forget the folks in the middle of the nation.
