WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Highway Users Alliance says elected officials should invest in transportation infrastructure rather than attempting to alter American behavior.
The suggestion came swiftly after the American Public Transportation Association released a study outlining the energy savings and environmental benefits of public transportation.
The study assumes drivers can be convinced to change their behavior, ignore the demands of their day-to-day lives, move into the nearest city, and leave their cars at home.
The general feeling among the highway group is that improving roadways and removing traffic bottlenecks can save lives, speed goods to market, save fuel and reduce pollution.
