Hello KYSITE!

A high profile ‘traffic study’ recently made the news as a result of a bridge / ramp closure in New Jersey.  While we’ll stay out of the politics of this one, it’s not everyday that traffic engineering becomes a punchline on late wordpressnight tv. 

The New York Times had an article on Monday about this topic.  Featured are quotes from ITE International President Hibbett Neel as well as long time ITE Member Sam Schwartz.  Check it out.

And to have a little fun, how about a few jokes:

“Clearly, somebody is getting thrown under the bus. Fortunately for them, the bus isn’t moving. It’s stuck in terrible traffic.” -Jon Stewart

“Let’s talk about the big game yesterday. The Seahawks beat the Broncos 43-8. The Broncos are blaming it on a traffic study.” – David Letterman

“Why did the traffic engineer cross the road? Because that’s what they did last year.” – unknown

 

See you at the Spring Meeting!
