One Big Pothole

In a candid interview with Deborah Solomon in the NY Times Magazine, Secretary Ray Lahood in response to a question about the America’s infrastructure, that….”America is one big pothole and Americans are ready for their streets and roads and bridges to be fixed up.”

The last telling question is: 

So, we are in for changes in the transportation policy to wean us off our cars? 

This interview reinforces the views presented previously by Secretary LaHood.  My colleague Sam Staley looked at the George Will article here and another interview with Secretary LaHood is reviewed here.
