Transportation is about people and place

Monday’s Quote

“Transportation is about more than engineering.”

~ Roy Kienitz, U.S. Department of Transportation Undersecretary

This quote was made at the US-DOT hosted “Keeping Kids Moving” conference last week. There seems to be political realization at the top that how we design our streets has consequences across the board, including childhood obesity. At the conference, Kienitz also uttered the following in a call for more public participation, “transportation is too important to be left to transportation professionals.

Reclaim the streets, beginning with your own.
