AASHTO campaign to air public's concerns

Posted on November 25, 2008

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) launched a new campaign that will give travelers an opportunity to share their views on "What the New President and Congress Should Know About Transportation."

Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 25, and continuing through the Inauguration, the traveling public is urged to go to www.IToldThePresident.org and post comments and videos about their transportation concerns.

"It's important that the American people have a voice in creating the kind of transportation system this nation needs," said AASHTO Executive Director John Horsley. "Our goal is to make certain that we find transportation solutions that work with and for communities and support jobs right here at home."

State departments of transportation (DOTs) across the country will be encouraging citizens to post videos about what's happening in their communities. AASHTO will also be posting comments from "person-on-the-street" interviews it will be conducting over the next several months.

Video postings from drivers, transit users and transportation experts voicing their concerns about traffic congestion, safety, air pollution, state budget cutting, and project delays due to funding shortfalls, are featured.
