Editorial: Transportation Drives Success

Alabama has the highest number of single-driver vehicles of any state in our country.

Congestion results and accidents follow.

One recent report ranked Montgomery's drivers among the worst 22 cities in the country.

Clearly we have a way to go to make our roads safer and to prepare for the huge growth happening all around our state.

Transportation drives business success - literally.

If you have infrastructure to move goods and services quickly and efficiently, you save time and money and attract new business opportunities.

Right now it takes longer to send a container by rail from Mobile to Huntsville than it does shipping it from Los Angeles to Huntsville.

Sustained success in business growth statewide depends on transportation improvement in all sectors.

The Transportation Means Business conference held this week in Montgomery will hopefully pave the way for this improvement.
