It would be nice for the Department of Transportation, Large Trucking Companies, and infrastructure planners to have more data on the flow of transportation in this great nation. We need a Nationwide Truck Traffic Transponder Satellite System, which would track every over-the-road truck and we need to model this super system after the current FAA air traffic control system. The benefits to such a system will be immense and also prevent traffic congestion thru GPS re-routing and warning of traffic bottlenecks. We can carefully determine those areas which need road or highway modification to take the extra number of trucks.You see everything we buy was brought in part or at least some of the way by truck. Everything you see which was built; every building, block wall, and concrete parking lot and all the materials used came by truck too.
The flow of transportation in the United States is one of our greatest assets indeed. Perhaps you might like to learn more about this:.http://worldthinktank.net/wttbbs/index.php?s
By carefully looking at the over all pictures and the flows of transportation using such a system we can prevent stolen trucks, International Terrorism using trucks and streamline this important flow of our civilization. Think more on this in 2006..
