“Our nation lacks an overarching transportation policy that lays out a map to get us out of this crisis. We must overcome outdated congressional funding mechanisms that serve political as opposed to national transportation goals, a lack of vision about how the private sector can work with the government in a constructive partnership to benefit states starved for funding, and an unfathomable reluctance to apply advanced cost-saving technologies to the inspection and remediation of our transportation system. The problem demands leadership.”
—p. xxii - xxiii
