The Changing Face of Transportation:
Independence Day Edition
"WHEN, in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another; and to assume, among the Powers Of The Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the Causes which impel them to the Separation.
We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
Put aside your political beliefs for a minute and remember that we have a freedom that many on this planet don't possess. And remember the brave individuals that penned such a memorable document which was the beginning of these great United States.
Happy 236th Birthday America!

Congrats Bill Seymour!
With all of the craziness surrounding the 2012 SDITE/GLDITE Joint Annual Meeting, we neglected to send a big congratulations to Bill Seymour for being elected to the SDITE Board as Secretary/Treasurer for 2013. Bill is the third member of the Kentucky Section to have been elected to the SDITE Board (Lonnie Yates and Karen Mohammadi).
Congrats Bill -- we are very proud of you!

Thanks to Shawn Dikes for passing this along from Chris Fellerhoff -- very much appreciated!
Should We Pay Safe Drivers?
By: Billy Garrison (GRW)
Law enforcements officials are always looking for a way to slow down speeders. Fining them doesn't seem to have much of an effect. Should the government start paying people who follow the speed limit? The NHTSA recently published a study to answer this question. To read more, click here.
