What's driving an epidemic? The spread of syphilis along an interstate highway in rural North Carolina. (1/1018)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether county syphilis rates were increased along Interstate Highway 95 (I-95) in North Carolina during a recent epidemic. METHODS: Ecological data on syphilis cases demographic data, highway data, and drug activity data were used to conduct a cross-sectional and longitudinal study of North Carolina countries from 1985 to 1994. Crude and adjusted incidence rate ratios (IRRs) were determined by means of standard and longitudinal Poisson regression models adjusted for sociodemographic factors and drug use. RESULTS: Ten-year syphilis rates in I-95 counties greatly exceeded rates in non-I-95 counties (38 vs 16 cases per 100,000 persons) and remained higher after adjustment for race, age, sex, poverty, large cities, and drug activity (adjusted IRR = 2.05, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.84, 2.28). Syphilis rates were stable until 1989, when rates increased sharply in I-95 counties but remained stable in non-I-95 counties. Increased drug activity in I-95 counties preceded the rise in syphilis cases. CONCLUSIONS: A better understanding of the relationship between high-ways and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases may guide future prevention interventions.  (+info)

Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and genotoxic effects on nonsmoking Swedish road pavement workers. (2/1018)

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to investigate exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) from asphalt fumes among Swedish road pavement workers and determine whether any effects could be detected with genotoxic tests. METHODS: The study included 28 nonsmoking road pavers and 30 nonsmoking referents. The concentration of PAH was determined in the breathing zone of the road pavers. 1-Hydroxypyrene was analyzed before and after shifts of asphalt work and during the afternoon for referents. Sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and micronuclei (MN) were determined in peripheral lymphocytes. RESULTS: Several 3- or 4-ring PAH were found, and the analysis indicated that they occurred in bitumen fumes rather than in traffic fumes. The average total concentration of PAH was 2.3 (range 0.2-23.8) microg/m3. The concentration of 1-hydroxypyrene in urine was higher for the road pavers than for the referents, but there was no significant difference between the pre- and postshift values of the road pavers. The road pavers had no significant increase in SCE or MN. CONCLUSIONS: The study showed that Swedish road pavers have an increased exposure to PAH from bitumen fumes, but no genotoxic effects could be detected by SCE or MN tests.  (+info)

Socio-economic consequences of rheumatoid arthritis in the first years of the disease. (3/1018)

OBJECTIVE: Few data have been presented to document the impact of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on socio-economic well-being. In this study, exact figures on socio-economic consequences were assessed. METHODS: The socio-economic consequences were studied in an inception cohort (186 early RA patients, mean disease duration 3 yr) by measuring the change in work capability, income, rest during the daytime, leisure time activity, transport mobility, housing and social support occurring in the first years of the disease. RESULTS: For 89% of the patients, RA had an impact on one of the socio-economic items; for 58%, at least three of these items were affected simultaneously. Work disability appeared to be 4-15 times higher than in the general population. After 3 yr, 42% of the patients were registered as work disabled. Nearly a quarter of the patients experienced income reduction. Over 40% of the patients claimed extra rest during the daytime. Leisure activity changed towards activities with a lower joint load. There was a decline in transport mobility for 52% of the patients. Social support increased strongly. CONCLUSIONS: Socio-economic change already presents in the first years of RA and appears to be influenced by age, gender, marital status and work disability. Furthermore, physical limitation appeared to be predictive for work-related income reduction, reduced transport mobility and development of social dependency.  (+info)

Racial discrimination and alcohol-related behavior in urban transit operators: findings from the San Francisco Muni Health and Safety Study. (4/1018)

OBJECTIVE: A growing body of literature is documenting the health effects of racial discrimination. The authors investigated the association between racial discrimination and alcohol-related behavior in a sample of urban transit operators. METHODS: Using data from a 1993-1995 cross-sectional study of transit operators in San Francisco, California, the authors analyzed responses to two sets of questions about racial discrimination; the first set focused on reaction to unfair treatment and the second on arenas, or domains, of discrimination. Alcohol-related variables were: number of drinks per month, heavy drinking, alcohol dependence, and negative consequences of alcohol consumption. RESULTS: Operators who reported five or more domains of discrimination drank an average of 13.4 more drinks per month than those who reported no domains of discrimination (P = 0.01). Similarly, they were more likely to be heavy drinkers (adjusted odds ratio [OR] = 2.16; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.14, 4.09) and dependent on alcohol (adjusted OR = 2.02; 95% CI 1.08, 3.79) than operators who reported no domains of discrimination. The number of domains in which operators reported having experienced discrimination was not related to sex, age, household income, job seniority, or marital status, but varied significantly by educational level and race/ethnicity. CONCLUSIONS: Data from a sample of urban transit operators showed an association between the number of domains of discrimination and some alcohol-related outcomes, but not others.  (+info)

Transport and temperature effects on measurement of serum and plasma potassium. (5/1018)

Transport of blood samples from general practice to a central laboratory can result in spuriously high or low potassium concentrations. The importance of this phenomenon was studied in a general practice serving a population of 15,000 patients, 27 km from the pathology laboratory that routinely measured serum potassium. The design involved comparison of potassium levels between control serum (plain gel-separation serum tubes centrifuged in the surgery), routine serum (plain gel-separation tubes centrifuged in the laboratory) and routine plasma samples (lithium-heparin tubes centrifuged in the laboratory). Complete triple sets of data were obtained for 371 samples. Altman and Bland plots for the control serum vs routine serum samples showed a mean difference of +0.1 mmol/L with limits of agreement (+/- 2SD) +0.6 mmol/L, -0.4 mmol/L and for control serum vs routine plasma a mean difference of +0.2 mmol/L with limits of agreement +0.8 mmol/L, -0.4 mmol/L. There was a negative association between mean weekly routine plasma potassium levels with mean weekly temperatures achieved. Regression analysis indicated that both maximum temperature achieved and time to centrifugation significantly contributed to differences observed in the routine plasma samples, but not with the routine serum samples. For plasma samples exposed to high temperatures a clinically significant lowering of potassium concentrations can arise. These results confirm that spurious lowering of potassium concentrations occurs in plasma samples collected in a primary care setting. The preferred method is to centrifuge samples soon after venepuncture. Where this is not possible, collection into plain gel-separation tubes (serum) ensures less variation due to temperature and time to centrifugation than does collection into lithium-heparin tubes (plasma).  (+info)

Stability of plasma human immunodeficiency virus load in VACUTAINER PPT plasma preparation tubes during overnight shipment. (6/1018)

VACUTAINER PPT plasma preparation tubes were evaluated to determine the effects of various handling and shipping conditions on plasma human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) load determinations. Plasmas obtained from PPT tubes stored and shipped under nine different conditions were compared to conventional EDTA tube plasmas stored at -70 degrees C within 2 h after phlebotomy. Compared to viral loads in frozen EDTA plasma, those in PPT tube plasma that was frozen immediately and either separated or shipped in situ were not significantly different. Viral loads in PPT tube plasma after storage for 6 h at either room temperature or 4 degrees C, followed by shipment at ambient temperature or on wet or dry ice, were not significantly different from baseline viral loads in EDTA or PPT plasma. The results of this study indicate that the HIV load in PPT tube plasma is equivalent to that in standard EDTA plasma. Plasma viral load is not affected by storage or shipment temperature when plasma is collected in PPT tubes. Furthermore, plasmas can be shipped in spun PPT tubes, and the tubes provide a safer and more convenient method for sample collection and transport than regular EDTA tubes.  (+info)

Analysis of incidence of childhood cancer in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom in relation to proximity to main roads and petrol stations. (7/1018)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether there is an excess of leukaemias in 0-15 year old children among those living in close proximity (within 100 m) of a main road or petrol station. METHODS: Data for 0-15 year old children diagnosed between 1990 and 1994 in the United Kingdom West Midlands were used. Postcode addresses were used to locate the point of residence which was compared with proximity to main roads and petrol stations separately, and to both together. Odds ratios (ORs) were calculated with solid tumours as a control, and incidence ratios (IRs) with population density as a control. RESULTS: The method based on solid tumours as a control showed ORs of 1.61 (95% confidence interval (95% CI) 0.90 to 2.87) and 1.99 (95% CI 0.73 to 5.43), for those living within 100 m of a main road or petrol station respectively. When population was used as a control, the estimated IRs for leukaemia were 1.16 (95% CI 0.74 to 1.72) and 1.48 (95% CI 0.65 to 2.93) for residence within 100 m of a main road or petrol station respectively, but neither reached significance at the 95% level. Results for residence in close proximity to both a main road and petrol station were inconsistent, but there were few. The influence of socioeconomic factors as represented by the Townsend deprivation index on leukaemia incidence was not significant and the results were not explicable on the basis of impact of social class. CONCLUSIONS: The results are suggestive of a small increase in risk of childhood leukaemia, but not solid tumours, for those living in close proximity to a main road or petrol station. This increase in risk is not, however, significant and a larger study is warranted to establish the true risk and causes of any increase in risk.  (+info)

HIV heterogeneity and proximity of homestead to roads in rural South Africa: an exploration using a geographical information system. (8/1018)

objective To describe heterogeneity of HIV prevalence among pregnant women in Hlabisa health district, South Africa and to correlate this with proximity of homestead to roads. methods HIV prevalence measured through anonymous surveillance among pregnant women and stratified by local village clinic. Polygons were created around each clinic, assuming women attend the clinic nearest their home. A geographical information system (GIS) calculated the mean distance from homesteads in each clinic catchment to nearest primary (1 degrees ) and to nearest primary or secondary (2 degrees ) road. results We found marked HIV heterogeneity by clinic catchment (range 19-31% (P < 0.001). A polygon plot demonstrated lower HIV prevalence in catchments remote from 1 degrees roads. Mean distance from homesteads to nearest 1 degrees or 2 degrees road varied by clinic catchment from 1623 to 7569 m. The mean distance from homesteads to a 1 degrees or 2 degrees road for each clinic catchment was strongly correlated with HIV prevalence (r = 0.66; P = 0.002). conclusions The substantial HIV heterogeneity in this district is closely correlated with proximity to a 1 degrees or 2 degrees road. GIS is a powerful tool to demonstrate and to start to analyse this observation. Further research is needed to better understand this relationship both at ecological and individual levels, and to develop interventions to reduce the spread of HIV infection.  (+info)

The announcement was made by Bratislava spokesman Peter Bubala.. Moodys claims that it chooses and applies its conceptual reforms from an incomplete boulevard rather than a quick launch of public transportation. Because the face of our city will determine this neighborhood and this major artery for oncoming traffic. In an agreement with investors, we are revising some elements of Boulevard to improve conditions for residents, cyclists, pedestrians and travelers, Bubla said.. The cycling route will be moved along the bi-route north of the street and safely detached from the road. Thus, the collision points designed so far in the area of ​​public transport stops are about to cease. The spokesman said that such a solution would enable the implementation of a two-lane bicycle lane on the south side of the street after the temporary bus station was completed.. The trains will extend from 2.5 to 5.5 meters. The width and number of lanes will also change, the number of bushes and bushes on the ...

Contemporary society is characterised by the constant increase of mobility. Although individual mobilities can be seen as a new form of capital and the premise for innovation, this has also a negative impact on surrounding environment and social structures. Hence, human travel behaviour research is essential for understanding a myriad of different societal issues. To date, human travel behaviour has been thoroughly examined using activity-travel diaries predominantly based on short period of time (up to three days). The need to understand travel behaviour from a longitudinal (monthly, yearly) perspective has increased due to the overall increase of individual mobility, together with the increase of the complexity of human travel behaviour and its flexibility in space and time. Mobile phone based data are perceived to be one promising means to cost-effectively assess human movements and its variability in the prolonged perspective. This dissertation ascertains how mobile phone based data can help ...

Im in a high risk group and theres a higher likelihood of dying if I get infected then for the average person. I will reduce the amount of public transportation travel but being totally isolated wont be good for my health either. I have a decent supply of surgical masks. How much percentage of the infection risk is do to having exposed eyes? Does it make sense to protect them with swimming googles?
Im sitting on the streetcar and this guy is acting like i have cooties. Hes about 50 and sitting across from me. He keeps scooting his stuff closer to himself even though its nowhere near me.

Thousands of riders boarded UTA trains and buses on Free Fare Friday, Dec. 22, and the result was a significant reduction in air pollution. An extra 17,560 cars were removed from the roads that day, and an additional 3 tons of pollutants and 200 tons of greenhouse gases were prevented from entering the atmosphere. Free Fare Friday was designed to encourage people to try public transit - and it worked, said UTA President/CEO Jerry Benson. Thousands of riders boarded our buses and trains, and we were able to save several tons of pollution from entering our atmosphere during a critical time of year for air quality. We hope this translates to more Wasatch Front residents who are willing to leave their cars at home and ride UTA again, especially during inversion season.. Ridership for the entire UTA system increased by 23 percent on Free Fare Friday, compared to the average of five previous weekdays. Approximately 22,800 more people than usual rode public transit on Dec. 22 using the same ...
Hi, I am looking for new solutions to implementing public transit along an ecologically sensitive seashore where the road keeps getting washed out. Has anyone run across an over-sand shuttle or rail system? ANy original ideas about seashore public transit? This will service mainly recreationalists. Also, anyone with information on hydroplanes as public transit? Thanks!
State departments of transportation are focusing increased attention on freight transportation. The reasons are many, obvious and compelling. They include: (1) A rapidly increasing volume of freight; (2) Transportation overloads at major freight gateways; (3) Constraints on infrastructure capacity for all modes; (4) The need for efficiency in intermodal connections; and (5) Heavy traffic in major multimodal, multi-state transportation corridors. As a consequence, many State DOTs are analyzing the freight transportation needs of their states, giving greater priority to freight transportation investments, participating in public-private ventures, and engaging in innovative financing arrangements for freight projects. For most, this shift represents new lines of business and new ways of doing business. Many programmatic and technical issues are involved, but the foundation for programs must be constructed through policy and organization decisions. Therefore, the leaders of the State DOTs need to ...

More than 30 members of Congress, including U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Jesus Chuy Garcia (D-IL), and Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), introduced legislation on Thursday calling for equal funding for transit and highways.. Called the Transit Parity Resolution, the legislation would change how Congress determines to fund highways and public transportation. Currently, Congress uses a formula set in 1982 that allocates 80 percent of federal transportation dollars to highways, and the remaining 20 percent to public transit. The resolution calls for transit funding to be equal to highway funding.. Public transit is a public good, and its past time our government treat it like one, Pressley said. For too long, our federal transportation investments have prioritized highways over public transit, incentivizing travel in private cars, which increases traffic congestion, produces pollution, and exacerbates racial and economic inequality.. The resolution is supported by several transportation ...
Home » Information Center » Publications. Posted 9/13. The SouthWest Advisory Planning Committee (SWAP) requested that the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) jointly analyze the existing public transit network in the subregion.

By 2050, continued urbanization will add 2.5 billion people to todays worldwide urban population, with nearly 90% of the growth concentrated in Asia and Africa. India, China, and Nigeria together will account for nearly 37% of the estimated increase of the total urban population. In order to ensure that the benefits of urbanization are equitably distributed, strong policy instruments are required. Emerging economies where much of the infrastructure is yet to be built offer a unique opportunity for low-carbon development. This is especially true in the case of the transportation sector. Designing cities for public transportation, walking, and cycling can offer affordable ways to meet mobility demands and cut global pollutants. Choosing an appropriate transportation technology can significantly affect the spatial structures of cities and ensure a more sustainable form of development. While large and medium cities can be designed for public transportation, smaller cities can be designed for active ...

Traffic Reform. According to the TomTom Traffic Index, Portland has become one of the top ten cities in the nation with the most traffic congestion. With our ever-growing population, issues abound with inadequate public transportation and commuting options for drivers. Our current infrastructure does not support the hundreds of thousands of cars on the roads, and there are many necessary repairs needed to restore bridges and highways. The current City Council proposal does not reduce carbon emissions, focuses on unrealistic highway expansion and minimal street repairs for a total of 450 million dollars. In other growing cities such as Los Angeles, Seattle, etc., it has been statistically and historically proven to increase one-person driver vehicles and has been unsuccessful in eliminating or decreasing traffic congestion.. How can we create a city that is more green, provides excellent public transportation and also has a budget for maintaining sustainable city infrastructure? Well, I believe ...

The national strategy for reducing road transport emissions is likely to be ultimately effective. Professor Alastair Lewis from the Department of Chemistry said: The wide range of simultaneous actions being proposed, and sectors and pollutants being targeted, is a reflection that further improving air quality in the U.K. is getting harder and harder, now the big industrial and combustion sources are under control.. Whilst road transport emissions remain a critical source of pollution in U.K. cities they are on a gradual downwards trajectory for both NOx and PM. The rate of adoption of electric vehicles may be proceeding only slowly, and uncertainty remains over their non-exhaust emissions, however the national strategy for reducing road transport emissions is likely to be ultimately effective, if a somewhat lengthy and drawn out process over two decades.. Quietly increasing. Whilst road transport has already seen recent reductions in emissions, domestic and agricultural releases of air ...
The EU HyWays project has released its main report European Hydrogen Energy Roadmap The Roadmap analyzes the potential impacts on the EU economy, society and environment of the large-scale introduction of hydrogen in the short- and long- term (up to 2050). A few excerpts from the press release announcing the report follow: The scientific project HyWays funded by the EUs research program has found that introducing hydrogen into the energy system would reduce the total oil consumption by the road transport sector by 40% between now and 2050. Substantial barriers have first to be overcome, ranging from economic and technological to institutional barriers, and actions must be taken as soon as possible. Following a series of more than 50 workshops the project has produced a Roadmap to analyze the potential impacts on the EU economy, society and environment of the large-scale introduction of hydrogen in the short- and long- term, as well as an action plan detailing what needs to...

Description | Recommended courses Description Transportation has always played an essential role in the development of society, originally with regard to trade routes and harbours, but more recently with regard to land- and air-based systems as well. It is the transportation engineers responsibility to plan, design, build, operate and maintain these systems of transport, in such a way as to provide for the safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods. Increasing environmental concerns have revived an interest in the development and management of public transportation systems. Professional activities can range from road and transit design and operation at the urban scale, to railroad, seaway and airport location, construction and operation at the regional and national scale. Transportation engineering in North America focuses on automobile infrastructures, although it also encompasses sea, air and rail systems. Automobile infrastructures can be split into the traditional area of highway

The Active Transportation Program is administered by the Division of Local Assistance, Office of Active Transportation and Special Programs. Guidelines for the program ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Exploring public transport equity between separate disadvantaged cohorts: A case study in Perth, Australia. AU - Ricciardi, Anthony Michael. AU - Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia). AU - Currie, Graham. PY - 2015. Y1 - 2015. N2 - This paper explores the equity distribution of public transport for three separate disadvantaged cohorts including elderly residents, low-income households and no-car households for Perth, Western Australia. It also undertakes a city-wide equity analysis of Perth and compares this with a published analysis for Melbourne. Overall the public transport distribution of the three socially disadvantaged groups was identified to be less equitable when compared to the population as a whole. The elderly had the most inequitable distribution of population relative to other cohorts. Perth s population exhibits a 0.52 Gini coefficient suggesting a relatively unequal spatial distribution of services to the population. However, this is much better than Melbourne (at 0.68). ...

Background: Public transportation constitutes a vulnerable sector in modern day society with a high probability of generating mass casualties if attacked. By preparing for mass-casualty attacks (MCAs), response can become more effective and public transportation can become a less rewarding target. However, preparedness for attacks, much like response, implies resource constraints, and this dissertation pinpoints some major dilemmas that inhibit achieving preparedness for MCAs on public transportation in Sweden.. Aim: The aim of this dissertation was to investigate preparedness for mass-casualty attacks on public transportation. This allowed for identification of major challenges for preparedness and response with a particular focus on the Swedish context.. Methods: Study I included 477 MCAs identified through searches of the Global Terrorism Database, journals, newspapers and websites, which were examined with descriptive statistics. Study II thematically analyzed 105 articles attained by ...
The global pandemic of physical inactivity represents a considerable public health challenge. Active transportation (i.e., walking or cycling for transport) can contribute to greater total physical activity levels. Mobile phone-based programs can promote behaviour change, but no study has evaluated whether such a program can promote active transportation in adults. This study protocol presents the design and methodology of The Smart City Active Mobile Phone Intervention (SCAMPI), a randomised controlled trial to promote active transportation via a smartphone application (app) with the aim to increase physical activity. A two-arm parallel randomised controlled trial will be conducted in Stockholm County, Sweden. Two hundred fifty adults aged 20-65 years will be randomised to either monitoring of active transport via the TRavelVU app (control), or to a 3-month evidence-based behaviour change program to promote active transport and monitoring of active travel via the TRavelVU Plus app (intervention).

Testimony by Julia Kite, Policy and Research Manager, Transportation Alternatives. ***SUPPORT***. Thank you for convening this hearing. I am Julia Kite, Policy and Research Manager of Transportation Alternatives. We are a 43-year-old membership-based advocacy organization with more than 150,000 New Yorkers in our network, dedicated to biking, walking, and public transportation as city-friendly alternatives to private automobile use in New York City. We advocate on behalf of all of New York Citys pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users for safer and more livable streets.. The topic of todays hearing is very timely, because the parking systems currently in place in New York City are unsustainable, inequitable, and an impractical use of public space. For too long, parking policies have privileged the free or low-cost storage of private property, in the form of cars, on huge swathes of city streets, while pedestrians and public transit users are forced to compete for whatever space they can get. ...

Welcome to Car Free Americas Web Site... Hi. Im Steve Atlas, founder of CarFreeAmerica.org. I appreciate you visiting our web site. I hope you have viewed some of our city profiles-places with walkable neighborhoods where you can live without needing to depend on a car. If you havent already, look at our gasoline price ticker on the bottom left side of our home page. As you see the price of gas steadily increase (or temporarily decrease to under $4 a gallon), do you remember when gas cost less than $1 per gallon? Nearly every week, there is at least one newspaper article about how people are coping with the high cost of gasoline. Carpooling, selling large homes in communities far from public transportation, biking or using public transportation instead of driving-these are just a few ways people are changing the way they live. Reducing our dependency on a car doesnt need to be a grim business-like taking an unpleasant medicine. Driving less can be fun. Walking, cycling, and using public ...

This study focused on the presence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in a metro system as an example of a public transportation system. The molecular characteristics of Staphylococcus were investigated to discern which strains were isolated from metro stations in Shanghai. These were compared with strains isolated from hospital treatment rooms and parks. Airborne Staphylococcus samples in the metro were resistant to an average of 2.64 antibiotic types, and 58.0% of the strain samples were resistant to at least three antibiotics; this was a significantly higher rate than strains from the park, but was lower than those from hospitals. The presence of two antibiotic resistance genes of Staphylococcus strains, mecA (28.0%) and qac (40.0%), were also found at significantly higher levels in metro samples than park samples, but did not differ significantly from hospital samples. Furthermore, 22.0% of the metro Staphylococcus samples were found to be biofilm-positive. The high rate of antibiotic resistance found
The Act both implements and complements the driving time and rest period provisions enacted in EU legislation.

The working hours of an entrepreneur driver may amount to no more than 48 hours per ...
The aim of Travel Smart is to influence travel behaviour change, to shift travelling commuters to off-peak periods, encourage a switch to more sustainable modes of travel such as public transport, walking and cycling or reduce travel demand altogether.. Travel Smart is based on the concept of travel planning, which is widely implemented by organisations in cities like London, Manchester, Dublin and Sydney. Essentially, travel planning is a means of evaluating how the management and employees of an organisation currently travel to work, and during the day as part of their work. Based on the analysis of existing patterns and attitudes with regard to travel, an action plan for improved transport efficiency and sustainability is prepared.. We have launched a new Travel Smart Network to intensify efforts and encourage more organisations to implement measures such as flexi travel arrangements to support employees who may wish to travel during off-peak periods. For a start, LTA will partner ...
The scope of the U.S. surface and maritime transportation systems--which primarily includes roads, mass transit systems, railroads, and ports and waterways--is vast. One of the major goals of these systems is to provide and enhance mobility. With increasing passenger and freight travel, the surface and maritime transportation systems face a number of challenges in ensuring continued mobility. These challenges include: (1) preventing congestion from overwhelming the transportation system, and (2) ensuring access to transportation for certain underserved populations and achieving a balance between enhancing mobility and giving due regard to environmental and other social goals. There is no one solution for the mobility challenges facing the nation, and numerous approaches are needed to address these challenges. These strategies include: (1) focusing on the entire surface and maritime transportation system rather than on specific modes or types of travel to achieve desired mobility outcomes, (2) ...
As the name suggests, smart transportation system (STS) involves different innovative technologies related to different modes of transport. Numerous users of these transport modes get better, smarter and highly coordinated information. This technology is also known as intelligent transport system.

Rural areas in developing counties lack transportation for health delivery partly because of the geography of area [4], individual lifestyles, low household prioritization on health, and inadequacy of policy to provide transportation for health delivery as shown by our results. This challenges the effectiveness of primary health delivery programmes and strategies implemented to increase access to maternal and child health services in particular. This paper demonstrates the need for effective transportation in health delivery particularly in developing countries [11, 13] where ambulance services may not be efficient in supporting access to critical health services, and presents a framework for sustainable transportation services driven by community participation.. In the construct of the current paradigm of PHC in Ghana, referral is relied heavily upon because the main services provided under the CHPS strategy are preventive health and basic health care. This makes transportation issues very ...

The effect of transport on serum amyloid A (SAA), haptoglobin (Hp), Fibrinogen and white blood cells (WBC) was evaluated in 10 ewes and 10 beef cattle. All animals were transported by road for 6 h over a distance of about 490 km with an average speed of 80 km/h. Blood samples, collected via jugular venepuncture, were obtained before and after transport as well as after 12, 24 and 48 h rest time. One-way repeated measures analysis of variance showed a statistically significant effect of sampling time on SAA, Hp, and WBC in ewes and beef cattle. Based on these results, Hp and SAA levels, together with WBC, may be useful indicators of animal health and welfare and in predicting the risk assessment in meat inspection ...
Mapping out the effect of air pollution on Americans is often done in two parts - transportation researchers do studies on vehicle emissions and health researchers do studies on conditions such as asthma and how brain development is affected. A new center run by Texas A&M aims to bring these two parties together.. Texas A&M and four other universities received more than $11 million from the Department of Transportation to fund The Center for Advancing Research in Transportation Emissions, Energy and Health, or CAR-TEEH. The center is one of 32 that received five years of funding in December to tackle problems related to the nations transportation needs.. CAR-TEEH brings together researchers from Texas A&M, Johns Hopkins University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Texas-El Paso and the University of California-Riverside.. Led by Joe Zietsman, Texas A&M Transportation Institutes Environment and Air Quality Division head, these researchers are focused on providing insight on the ...
Construction zone speed limits may differ from the general limits.. Electronic radar detectors are located on all autobahns, motorways, and in cities to assist the police with speed enforcement. Austria employs cameras in controlled speed zones, and drivers may be ticketed automatically for speed violations. All vehicles on the Austrian Autobahn (highway) must have a toll vignette for passenger vehicles or a toll transponder for heavier commercial vehicles. Vignettes can be purchased at most gas stations and local Tabak-Traffik tobacco shops.. The legal limit for blood alcohol is 0.05 BAC. Fines for violating this limit range from 218€ to 3,634€ and result in the suspension of the drivers license.. During heavy congestion on highways, when traffic significantly slows, Austrian law mandates that motorists leave a corridor for emergency vehicles to pass. The corridor forms to the inside of the right-hand lane of traffic.. Public Transportation Conditions. Public transit systems are excellent. ...
Active transportation refers to modes of travel that incorporate physical activity as part of the trip. Examples include walking and bicycling, as well as transit, since walking or bicycling is typically required for transit station access and egress. The Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization has recently restructured its regional transportation policies and programming priorities as part of the development of the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan to enable more active transportation by encouraging the implementation of infrastructure such as sidewalks, bikeways, and transit. The result is a significant increase in the number of federally-funded transportation projects in the greater Nashville region that provide opportunities for active transportation trips. ...
Buses are larger vehicles with multiple passengers.. The large number of persons on a given bus means that a single accident can result in numerous injuries.. In Santa Clara, the most common types of buses are single-story, but there are some larger, two-level ones.. There are also articulated buses, which are two buses connected together.. In Santa Clara, buses are used for inner city commuting as well as for long distance transportation in and out of the city.. There are also designated school buses for children of various ages.. Some buses are used as public transportation, a service provided by the government or a public organization.. Others are used as private transport, that is, they are rented for a specific use.. Buses must be registered.. According to the Transportation Department of the Federal Highway Traffic Safety Administration (FMSCA), 10.6 million large commercial trucks and more than 764 thousand buses were registered in the United States in 2012..

Because of the strong odour, durian is not allowed in many public places in Thailand, including public transportation, hotels and aeroplanes. However, Nakhon Chai Air, a public bus company, has reintroduced a transportation service for durian lovers by allowing them to load the fruit in the hold of the bus. However, passengers will not be allowed to take the fruit to the interior of the bus. Kruawan Wongrakmit, CEO of the firm, said that since the durian season has arrived, many people wanted to send it to their friends and families or wanted to take the fruit along on a journey. Many were not sure if they would be allowed to carry it in public transport. She said durian was welcome on Nakhon Chai Air buses but the firm had to be given prior intimation. The fruit would be carefully packed and sealed in boxes provided by the firm. She said the packed durians would loaded in... Full article: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/news/national/30316193 ...

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has promoted intercity passenger rail service since 1976 by augmenting Amtraks basic system of interstate trains. In 2018, Amtrak had 12,306,444 boardings and alightings (deboardings) in California (the sum of boardings and alightings represents Amtrak ridership). Over 869,116 California residents were members of the Amtrak Guest Rewards frequent user program in 2018. Figure 4 provides the number of boardings and alightings by counties in 2018 and the percent change in ridership from 2017 to 2018. Ridership increased in Solano County after a new station opened in Fairfield-Vacaville at the end of 2017. In other counties, natural disasters impacted ridership. Santa Barbara ridership increased because Highway 101 was closed due to mudslides. Wildfires temporarily suspended service in Butte, Shasta, and Siskiyou counties and may have also impacted ridership in San Luis Obispo.. Figure 4: Amtrak Ridership in 2018 ...
The Connecticut Business and Industry Association on Monday issued a statement saying that although infrastructure is important to Connecticuts economy, the association could not support adding additional cost burdens, like tolls, on individuals and businesses.. Although CBIA recognized the state needs to improve infrastructure, they faulted the legislature for diverting funds away from the Special Transportation Fund in the past and said it is incumbent upon the General Assembly to determine ways to fund transportation improvement.. But not with tolls.. It is the consensus of the board that at this time of fiscal instability due to high state spending and fixed costs, we cannot support highway tolls as one of those funding mechanisms, the CBIA wrote.. Gov. Ned Lamont has said that improving the states transportation system - including highways, bridges and public transportation - is key to making Connecticut a more business friendly state.. However, a number of businesses - particularly ...

The trends in worldwide shipments of PCs and tablets are continuing to change, according to IDC analysts.. In a report Nov. 25, the market research firms said the decline in shipments of PCs will continue to slow, hitting a 2.7 percent drop this year. Its still a decline-continuing a streak that began in 2011-but the decreases are continuing to slow down, and the 2.7 percent is an improvement over an earlier IDC forecast of 3.7 percent fall in shipments.. However, most markets saw slight gains in PC shipments in the third quarter, the analysts said.. In another report the same day, IDC analysts said that shipments of tablets-which have been a key factor in the decline of PC sales over the past several years-will decelerate rapidly this year, growing 7.2 percent over 2013. That contrasts with the 52.5 percent increase in tablet shipments seen last year.. In addition, 2014 will be the first year in which shipments of Apples iPad-which kicked off the rush for tablets when it was released in ...
