Reviewing the Legislative Session

Jim Mayer has a nice recap piece in Sunday’s O with a summary of transportation changes enacted this legislative session. Here are some of the key items:

  • Authority to clear accidents from freeways more quickly (one of Commissioner Adams’ prioritities from the “Anatomy of a Crash” project)
  • A number of key changes requested by the cycling community
  • More cities allowed to use red light cameras
  • Teenagers are not allowed to drive while using cell phones

Not bad, but the gas tax still hasn’t been raised since 1993…
