Hi, what are you looking for?



Transportation in 2010


Others topics on AASHTO’s top ten list include “Deterring Distracted Driving” (#3), “Ensuring Safer Roads” (#4), “Moving on High-Speed Rail Grants” (#5) — discussed previously on CleanTechnica, “Responding to Increased Congestion Due to Capacity Issues” (#7), “Enhancing Safety through Roadway Improvements” (#9), and ” Creating More Livable Communities” (#10).

As part of many of those topics, I think many cities around the country could learn from what Portland has done to increase bicycling and other modes of transport in recent years (great & somewhat wacky bicycle photos included in this story). It is a true model of success when it comes to transportation.

We have a lot to do to turn things around in transportation in the US. Hopefully, this will be a year that really gets things on the right track.
