Transport Topics - January 22, 2013

US Trans­porta­tion Sec­re­tary Ray LaHood will remain in his job for an unspec­i­fied period of time in Pres­i­dent Obama’s sec­ond term. LaHood declined to defin­i­tively state his plans at sev­eral pub­lic appear­ances last week, and at the inau­gu­ra­tion party in Wash­ing­ton Mon­day night that he will be “stick­ing around for a while.” LaHood is well known for crack­ing down on dis­tracted dri­ving and vehi­cle safety improvements.
