In a poll of more than 700 Massachusetts voters, over 80 percent support raising money for transportation investments.

The Barr Foundation Transportation Poll also gathered opinions on a number of other hot-button transportation issues. Nearly 80 percent supported banning hands-on use of electronic devices while driving—and a similar number would extend that ban to walking.

Results of the poll are available in Greenfield's Recorder.
