Bush DOT Secretary Gives Her Two Cents

Mary Peters, Secretary of Transportation from 2006-2008, gives her opinion on where transportation funding should go. Better technology is high on her list.

"NJ: What do you think the priorities for reauthorization should be?

Peters: One of the things that I'm advocating for is a billion dollars a year for technology. We can use technology significantly better than we are today to improve what I call the "through-put" of our transportation system, to get it to operate better in places where we can't build fast enough and where we can't build any more. We need to look at performance-based systems, key performance measures and what we are trying to accomplish with the money we spend."
