The Federal Highway Administration FHWA implemented an enhanced methodology for estimating registered vehicles and vehicle miles traveled by vehicle type beginning with data from
And then he sat on the He was more progressive than the party, I believe is the way he expressed it. But at any rate, there was this conversion, correct? Well, I don't know.
The biggest appointment came before the conversion. At least, it was felt that he would be an addition, have some insights that would be beneficial to the people through the Supreme Court, but I had had no contact with him in a personal way and certainly not in a political way.
Were you able to work with him well? Oh, I thought so. He was a very unique person. I had a great deal of difficulty reading his opinions. I always strove my opinion writing to be very specific and to deal with the law and not with any other surrounding material that may or may not be relevant to the issue before the Court, and he seemed to really rejoice and excel in writing long sentences that implied that there was some mysterious, sinister pool of conspiracy, at times, to do things.
Like there was some unseeing, guiding hand manipulating all of us which, to me, was the furthest things from the facts as I knew them that there could be, but he would always interject his opinions, almost personal beliefs, and I thought that was not Do you remember the two year voting case where it was instituted by a challenge of the constitutionality of the requirement to re-register or otherwise account for yourself every two years by the UAW Community Action Counsel, I think, went in on an injunction proceeding of some sort, and when that was decided by the Supreme Court in in the spring, there was a case where Black, in a dissent posture Mennen Williams, Adams and Kavanagh.
He talked about two former governors, two former attorney generals "behold to the Democratic Party" and all that. Was that kind of hard to take or what was your reaction to that?
You know, I don't specifically remember that case; the changing of registration matters. Keeping people registered longer, I presume, would be the position that we would be taking rather than limited their registration as it affected people that maybe lived in rental units and moved around more so that other people did.
I could say, if that was the posture of the case, I would be for extending the registration and having it transferred readily if that were the case, but of not denying the person the right to vote if they otherwise were qualified by some technical rule, and I don't even remember the dissent, because I think about that time that to me, at least, he was on the Court, but he wasn't really a factor in the Court.
This was his last year, and there had been some, as I recall it, abrasive public discussion, I think, over apportionment for one thing, over the selection process, judicial selection and that sort of thing, and he had, if I recall correctly, he had said that he would resign.
He was not going to run again. Either his health was failing or he was constitutionally not qualified or for whatever reason, he knew that was his last year, and early on, it seemed to me, he said publicly that he would get off the Court under certain conditions: I just wondered if you felt at this point, he began to behave in a fashion that was just not characteristic of him, that he was I don't really have a close association to know if he underwent any kind of a change in his personality.
As it appeared to me, he was more interested in personal vendettas in many instances rather than what was before the Court, and his babbling on some of those opinions, as I term them, were not instructive to either the lawyers or the general public of the state, so why clutter up the opinions with that sort of thing.
But I held no rancor towards the man. I know one of the things he prized as sort of a symbol of the old Court was the clock that was set in the bench, West Clock and was no longer being used, and he had expressed an interest in it, and I suggested that we make him a gift of that upon his retirement, that clock, which we did.Public Transport Scheduling.
the planner is interested in setting bus frequency on the network in the most precise way regarding which routes to be used and loaded according to passengers. Provide passengers with sufficient guidance to ensure compliance with 49 CFR , "Safe operation, buses." Seat Belt Use - If equipped, recommend the use of shoulder/lap seat belts whenever passengers occupy any seating position.
Crash frequency analysis, specifically macro-level crash models, 8 is a major component for devising and evaluating these road safety policies at a planning level. 9 Macro-level studies have mostly evolved in safety research to incorporate safety considerations.

But today, they are costlier than their diesel equivalents. Therefore, their implementation requires that private operators be subsidized, or that the higher costs for public operators be covered.
