Rogers, Carnahan Introduce Bill to Implement Smart Transportation Technologies

The Smart Technologies for Communities Act would create a competitive pilot program in up to six communities across the country to serve as model deployment sites for large-scale installation and operation of ITS technologies to improve safety, mobility and the environment. Examples of technology solutions include “connected” vehicles that avoid crashes, stress-sensing bridges, active traffic management to reduce congestion, electronic tolling systems to avoid the wait at the toll booth, and real-time traffic, transit, and parking information for commuters.
