A new survey released on September 25 by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute showed that nearly two-thirds of the 5,000 Texas citizens interviewed favor adding to the statewide transportation funding, KSAT 12 reported.
Among the suggested improvements of the Texas Transportation Poll, conducted by the institute’s Transportation Policy Research Center, that were supported the most were improved traffic signals, additional lanes, and quicker accident clean-ups. Sid Martinez, the director of the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, said that although people complain, they are unwilling to change their habits to prevent congestion. Ninety percent of the study’s respondents said their car is their main source of transportation.
