Advancing Solutions To America’s Transportation Problems: The nation’s transportation system is in trouble. America’s dependence on cars for transportation is the number one cause of our addiction to oil and a major contributor to global warming and air pollution. Americans waste millions of hours each year on congested roads – many of which are in increasingly poor repair. At the same time, we spend billions of taxpayer dollars each year on wasteful projects that should go to basic maintenance, modernization and investments in better transportation choices.
America must move toward a new transportation future for the 21st century that enhances our economy, national security, public health, environment, and quality of life.
