The U.S. Senate has unanimously approved Charlotte, N.C. Mayor Anthony Foxx to take over the role of U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary, replacing Ray LaHood.
A tax based on miles travelled might be needed to fill a growing gap in gas tax revenue as vehicles become more efficient.
With Ray LaHood stepping down as the U.S. Secretary of Transportation earlier this year, President Barack Obama has nominated Charlotte, North Carolina Mayor Anthony Foxx to take up the role.
The U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood, announced Tuesday that he will not be serving a second term as the secretary of transportation, marking the latest departure from Barack Obama’s cabinet.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood doesn’t like seeing people using cell phones behind the wheel, but who does?
It poses danger to everyone in the immediate vicinity, including the reckless chatterbox in question. What, then, should be done if you happen upon one of these miscreants during your morning commute?
LaHood has the answer: pull up to the offender and test your car horn’s limits. Hold the sucker down until your noise overpowers the conversation in violation. Why not, what harm could come of such vigilantism?
While that might be more agressive than what he actually does, LaHood said he drives around Washington on the weekends, seeking out cell phone users in the hopes of honking at them. He sees it as a personal responsibility of sorts.
After all, calling the police in that situation is both hypocritical and illegal. There aren’t any reports that LaHood’s weekend hobby has caused a crash, but thinking there’s a raging maniac beside you might be good cause to look away from the road. Here’s to hoping that nothing bad happens.
