Congress Delivers on Transportation Safety and Mobility

(WASHINGTON, June 28, 2012) Statement by AAA President & CEO Bob Darbelnet

“Today’s Congressional compromise on federal transportation legislation is a victory for drivers concerned about safety, congestion and road quality. AAA commends Congress for working together to negotiate a bipartisan agreement that will help maintain and improve the nation’s transportation system, while also implementing many critical reforms that AAA and other stakeholders have promoted for years.

“Next week, more than 35 million Americans plan to take to our nation’s highways to travel for the Independence Day holiday, which reinforces the real-world need for a safe and efficient transportation system. AAA urges both the House and the Senate to quickly pass the transportation authorization bill so that states can begin to implement construction projects with a greater degree of certainty and federal program reforms can begin to show dividends in terms of added safety, improved mobility and benefits to the economy.”
