Dr. Stough Speaks on “The Effect of Technology on Transportation Operations and Policy”

Posted on November 19, 2014

At our dinner meeting on November 18, 2014, our guest speaker was Dr. Roger Stough, Director of GMU’s International Center for Regulatory Science and Associate Dean of Research for the School of Public Policy. Dr. Stough discussed “The Effect of Technology on Transportation Operations and Policy”, which included a little bit of everything from Google’s driver-less vehicles (already on the road in two states), to toll roads, to “beam energy” powered flying cars. A common theme throughout his talk was that various forms of “institutional barriers” frequently hamper the introduction of technology-based efficiencies in transportation.
