The new suspension bridge carrying South Capitol Street over the Anacostia River looks graceful, with its soaring triple arches, and some drivers are getting their first ride on the new bridge. But the D. C Department of transportation plans evening weeknights stoppages in both directions from September 15th to the 29. Traffic will be held for as long as 15 minutes at various times between nine PM and six AM planners promised to avoid impacting Game nights at Nationals Park in Audi field. Giuliano W. T. O P. News. Some of the workers who helped build the $440 million Bridge had been talking with us about their justifiable pride in their creation. I'm happy, uh, I feel accomplished and glad to be appalled as project Novell Patterson, a lifelong D. C resident, says the Frederick Douglas Memorial Bridge he helped build It's a beautiful sight to see smashing their bridge named after the great tragedy, Douglas someone that our mind respect another construction worker from the city, Anthony first name only.

And construct a new South Nash street. Arlington County warns there will be traffic disruptions and lane closures.

"Hey, look, kids, there's big band there's Parliament. But the fears of La Hoya, California and Woodland Washington are realized he can't get off the roundabout. There it is. There it is. There it is. I know I can't seem to get over the left, honey. I'll try it next time. Sorry, So he goes around and around as it grows dark outside. Yes, we know big been Parliament. I am not a psychologist, so I won't pretend to give you a psychological analysis of the American driving public. That again. Is Doug He cocks with the Federal Highway Administration. But the Europeans have been using traffic circles in one form or another, for far longer at a much higher percentage of the population than the United States has. The fact is that Columbus Circle in New York City was built in 19. Oh, five, but For whatever reasons, the Roundabout simply didn't become popular in the US the reality of road projects in general, whether they be roundabouts or big bridges. The response to and commitment to it by the public really does vary everywhere for any number of reasons. Some members of the public balk at cost issues. Others bulk at the design of it some bulk at the timeline of it others bulk of the potential environmental downside of construction. And so it's hard to pinpoint why there may be Resistance to roundabouts other than it's an inconvenience, or it's going to force me to slow down, but we think they haven't really understood just how beneficial roundabouts can be. Once the drivers use it and actually figure out how to do it properly, Their apprehension tends to go away. Indeed, one survey published in a transportation journal found that most drivers just before around about was built in their area were anti roundabout. Within six weeks of operation. About half the drivers approved and once the roundabout was in place for at least a year, The vast majority of drivers approved I think one of the other complicating factors is that in the United States, we have the most established set of transportation design guidelines compared to other countries. That again is the traffic engineer Mike McBride. That's good for the most part, but what it does, is it it trains are driving population to rely on the transportation system to instruct them at every move. And it causes them to put a lot of trust whether deserved or undeserved. In the technology that's built into our transportation system around about is a deviation from that. Because now I have to think for myself. A yield sign at every entry it around about requires that a driver has to come to that yield sign and think for themselves. AM I allowed to go? Am I not allowed to go so it's uncomfortable for a driver that you know wants to be instructed around about really does stretch the How to phrase this. It's almost like the processing power of the human brain that is Oliver Cameron. He was the co founder and CEO of Voyage Autonomous Vehicles startup in California that was recently acquired by the bigger autonomous vehicle Company Crews, which in turn is owned by General Motors voyage specialized in self driving taxis and shuttle vans in places like senior Living Communities. Big spread out areas that are often built as it happens with a lot of roundabouts if our future includes more autonomous vehicles and more roundabouts. You have to wonder how well they'll mix when a human driver enters around about, Cameron explains. What you're doing is having to do this intricate dance almost with all of these other people. You're basically taking social cues from all of these different vehicles, and you're doing that visually. As we've been hearing learning this roundabout dance can be a challenge for human drivers in a robot taxi. That same challenge is present. You have to be able to perceive these objects early. Objects, including not just other vehicles, but pedestrians, cyclists, dogs, You have to be able to understand their intent, understand their direction, their speed and all of these things make for a particularly interesting challenge and a robot taxi is not quite as aggressive as a human driver, so it's very conservative. And in some circumstances, you cannot be conservative. It just doesn't work. You'd be stuck there at the entrance to around about forever. Or maybe inside the roundabout. Yes, we now Big man Parliament. So how did voyage deal with roundabouts? The way we think about roundabouts is it is a negotiation and that negotiations starts by detecting these objects. What is then important.

"Done right. The American people want it done. And it's key to our pursuit of happiness. So I think that there is much about the new that has to be done. But also we have to maintain the system that we have currently. Well. It's interesting that you bring up the coast to and I do wonder about that. With climate change. We talk about Florida a lot here on Bloomberg gets caught the attention of investors, you know, should we continue to build back in shore up? If we're not going to really equally do something about climate change, because it's just a case of rebuilding the castle only to see the shoreline. Take it down again. Yeah, well, you know, the president has been very clear about that. And I think he's really hit on three words that I believe will ultimately define the effort that he has proposed, and the effort that the Congress will Actually passed. He talked about resilience. He's talked about sustainability and equity, and all of those issues go to the transportation system of the future. Being more resilient where it's stored up where it's, um, building back, better being sustainable, meaning a system that can withstand the challenges afraid within the challenges of natural disasters, those sorts of things and then more equitable. It's during that everyone is included that no one is left behind. So I'm excited about what we can anticipate. I think that we've seen the system. Really, um, tested in this fourth of July holiday weekend where we've Enjoyed the opportunity as Americans to see America come back if you will, and and it's sort of get back to a period of normalcy, especially hopefully, as we've Sort of put covid in our rearview mirror. But again that has been the number one objective of the president, freeing us from that and then dealing with our economic pandemic, our economic challenges and then investing in the future, and I just feel good about where we are. But we've got Much more to do as the Congress returns from the holiday and sort of near the August recess and then, frankly, the end of the fiscal year the end of September. So a lot to do, But I think we're On the right track. To be sure, I think here again. We've seen some good signs. I mean, clearly this effort is not only an effort that's being pushed by the president. But you've got a Bipartisan group of senators who have responded quite admirably as well. And then, more recently, the House problem solvers caucus. Has stepped forward. That's roughly six members of 60 members of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats. So I think that's that's a good sign. I can tell you in years past. Those of us who have had the honor of serving as secretary of transportation. We've enjoyed significant bipartisan support. I was just with Sam Skinner, a secretary during the Bush administration, Bush one Was 41 outfit that way and gave us a wonderful piece of legislation. That was bipartisan. We came in shortly after that took advantage of that gift, uh, during reauthorization added additional resources. And really, it's that piece of legislation that's governed transportation policy for about 30 years. We now have a need to build on that and to go beyond that, And that's why this current opportunity is so critical that was former U. S transportation secretary and former administrator of the Federal Highway Administration, Rodney Slater, still ahead on Bloomberg Business Week as Congress tries to figure out passage of an infrastructure plan.

"From Bloomberg Radio. So a bipartisan group of House lawmakers have publicly endorsed President Joe Biden's $579 billion Infrastructure deal with a number of Republican and Democratic senators. We're talking about the hard infrastructure part of his deal, and that's giving the compromise fresh momentum at the start of a crucial month for the administration's agenda. The possibility of infrastructure spending has fascinated investors for years, joining us with some thoughts this week, former U. S Transportation secretary Rodney Slater, he served under President Bill Clinton. And before that, He was administrator of the Federal Highway Administration. I feel like we've been talking about an infrastructure spend forever. Today. Ronnie is a partner of the international well known law firm and lobbyist Squire Patton Boggs, based in Washington, D. C. Clearly, president Biden had a much larger bill, and I think ultimately even this measure will be Beyond that amount, because I think when you consider current spending levels with new spending levels, it's going to be an excess of $1 trillion But we've got significant transportation needs. I think this is a very, very important step. And I think just, as is the case with all transportation measures you have to have Fields that are continuously reauthorized. And it's just unfortunate that in the last you know, decade or so we just have not been as forthright In spending the kinds of dollars we have to spend to ensure that our system remains in good shape and that we are also investing in things of the future. Like Electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, high speed trains, maglev trains those sorts of things, so I'm excited about the build traditional infrastructure, primarily, though, with some significant investment in broadband. And I think it's a very important first step well, Secretary Slater, and that's something I wanted to get into about. You know, there's different types of infrastructure out there. You were Transportation secretary under President Bill Clinton before that, your administrator of the Federal Highway Administration, I mean, you have seen our infrastructure for many years. The comings and goings are we thinking about infrastructure in a bit of an outmoded way, an old model should we be thinking about ways to actually cut back on the use of roads and highways rather Than just building it back. And I'm thinking about things like efficient congestion. Pricing for cars and trucks are efficient payment and bridge where pricing for trucks Because trucks really kill our roads and highways, you know, should we have them be paying more that that will hopefully ultimately bring about? Better design if you will when it comes to trucks. Well, you know, First of all, let me just I want to step in and supportive, say trucks and trains because that's really what keeps our economy moving. We are the most mobile society in the world, and we moved significant amounts of freight and all the kinds of products that we take for granted. When we go to a grocery store when we go to a department store that sort of thing, and many of those goods are moved by trucks, many move by trains and even during the pandemic. These workers were on the front lines again keeping our economy going, But you're right. Transportation I've always said is about more than concrete, asphalt and steel. We have to look at new means of investing in transportation. We have to, frankly wean ourselves from a dependence on fossil fuels and look at new renewed energy sources. I think the president has challenged us. In that regard, even with his campaign theme of building back better, not this building back building back better and shoring up our infrastructure so as to withstand some of the Natural disasters that we're facing, especially on the coast. So we've got a lot of work to do. I think we've got the professionals to get that work done right. The American people want it done. And it's key to our pursuit of happiness. So I think that there is much about the new that has to be done..

President Biden is said to give an update today on the nation's fight against the coronavirus in his goal is to have 70% of adults with at least one vaccine shot by the fourth of July.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he is prepared to risk tension with the US if that's what it takes to neutralize Iran's nuclear capabilities, and this comes as he is on a little bit of shaky ground politically as well. ABC News correspondent Georgiana Miller is with us again this morning from Jerusalem. Giordano, What is all this stand for Benjamin Netanyahu. Well, that may be a Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's last remark on Iran as prime minister. We are looking at and believe that his opponents in the hours ahead will announce the formation of a unity government. Parties from right and left coming together. Opponents of the 10 yells from right and left coming together to replace him. The deadline is midnight local time. So still about eight hours left here. We hear from sources that there are only just a few more gaps to close before all the parties agree. Um, this will essentially put an end to Netanyahu's 12 years in power. If this government forms will be moved, forced, pushed really into the opposition on the real question is how long he can survive there in the opposition. It's this new government will pass certain laws that would prevent him from ever meeting Israel against such a term limits or No candidate can run if they're under criminal indictment, and of course, that Danielle was on trial for corruption and that corruption trial in the end really was his undoing. What do we know about who will replace him? It's really interesting. His replacement is going to be Neftali Bennett. If this government comes together, he's young. He's only 49 years old. He's the son of Americans. His English is perfect like Netanyahu's. I don't think anyone would say that he is as charismatic as Netanyahu or at this stage of politically savvy, but his small party, which didn't win that many seats in the last election. He nonetheless will be the prime minister because he holds the deciding vote on the larger party, led by centrists has essentially conceded the post of prime minister to him. Get him on board for this government. He is perhaps even more openly right wing than Netanyahu. He staunchly opposes the formation or the existence of establishment of a Palestinian state. He rejects a two state solution. He's in favor of annexation of Western Jewish settlements. Here's a staunch nationalist. And it may be that the positions hey, will moderate them once he's in office, But that's that is his record so far. Gordana.

Should We Retest Licensed Drivers Periodically?
"You drive a car or sometimes take cabs or lifts or have ever been around cars, you've likely had at least a few frustrating or scary experiences with really bad drivers. You know, a Radic merging or u-turns or casual disrespect for stop signs speed limits or pedestrian right of way or perhaps not disrespect. But ignorance of in a twenty eleven study conducted by g MAC insurance nearly one in five drivers weren't able to pass a written test of basic driving knowledge, the sort that license applicants take. But even though most people past there were some glaring gaps in critical areas. Eighty five percent of those tested, for example. Couldn't name the correct thing to do when approaching a yellow traffic light and only one in four knew how to calculate the safe distance for following a vehicle. See the article version of the story at how stuff works dot com. If you want quiz yourself. Requiring experienced motorists to regularly demonstrate their competence isn't something that's ever been conducted on a widespread basis in the US or some states didn't even require novice drivers to pass a road test until the nineteen fifties. Only one St. Illinois has a law mandating road skills tests for license renewals. And that's only for motorists who have reached age seventy-five New Hampshire once had a similar age related testing requirement. But repealed it in two thousand eleven and Slovenia randomly selects a small sample of these states forty five and older drivers and requires them to undergo additional medical and vision exams based on those results they might have to take a driving test as well. Additionally, a handful of other states, Iowa, Missouri, Michigan and California allow officials to selectively require road tests, for license holders, whom they have reason to believe might be unsafe. We spoke by Email with Andrea Henry director of strategic communications and policy for the Iowa department of transportation, she explained the in her state quote drivers with valid licenses may be asked to demonstrate their driving ability prior to renewal due to changes in their health. This includes physical and mobility conditions as well as produced division and cognitive issues. Wild data on how many retests are conducted wasn't available. Most of those drivers end up getting renewals. Anyway, though, many have restricted privileges such as a lower personal speed limit or daytime driving only one obvious problem with regularly re-testing experienced drivers who numbered around two hundred ten million in two thousand nine the most recent year for which federal highway administration. Data was available is that they'd have to get in line with all of those first time applicants that would create even longer lines of testing stations that already have their hands full coping with nervous adolescent struggling to perform complex maneuvers like the dreaded reverse two point turnabout without hitting those little yellow cones. A lot of those youthful license applicants end up coming back for retests themselves as of twenty eleven in California. For example, forty two point seven percent of applicants flunked the knowledge test while thirty two percent bombed out on the skills test. The worst knowledge test performance was in Missouri. With a sixty one point four percent failure rate while mains would be motorists did the worst in driving skills with forty percent, not making the grade and the US generally has driving tests that are a lot easier than the ones used by the rest of the world in the Canadian province of British Columbia. For example, would be drivers have to undergo Forty-five minutes of testing on several different types of road. And also must verbally describe what specific road hazards are immediately beside their vehicles one block ahead and also behind them to test their awareness. There isn't a lot of evidence that additional testing over the years necessarily would improve safety on the roads. As the insurance institute for highway safety explains studies have yielded conflicting results on the question of whether age restrictions reduced the rate of crashes in Illinois they did. But in New Hampshire, they did it the rate of injury, causing crashes per one hundred million miles driven actually is highest among teenage drivers. And then decreases and levels out for decades before starting to rise again slightly among people in their seventies and eighties. That's not the pattern that you would see if many people saw their driving skills or knowledge deteriorate significantly in middle age. We also spoke by Email with Jake Nelson, triple as director of traffic, safety, advocacy, and research he said re-testing where if you fail the test. You lose the license has been shown to have zero safety impact on the drivers involved, and it has been shown to reduce mobility, by way of drivers voluntarily giving up their licenses due to fear of getting them taken away rather than any legitimate concerns about their driving. There's no justification through data and research for testing or screening at a certain age. One Gary biller, president of the national motorists association, which is a nationwide advocacy group is similarly skeptical about the value of re-testing experienced drivers. He said by Email safety statistics consistently show that the accident rates of drivers seventy years of age and older are not much different than those in the thirty five to sixty nine year age group by contrast

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, Brian stuff. I'm Lorne Bogle bomb. And today's question is why are stop signs read one not green or purple why not mango Tango or tickle me pink in the early days of motor vehicles. The rules of the road where let's say they were really more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules. Believe it or not the first stop signs in America were not put in place until nineteen fifteen according to historical estimates by the federal highway administration in nineteen fifteen. There were already almost two point five million cars driving on US roads. When those much needed. I stop signs finally did show up. It happened in the motor capital of Detroit. Michigan, and they were not the red octagon that we know and love today but white squares with black letters now traffic sign codes throughout the twentieth. Century have recommended several different variations on the basic design. A for example in nineteen thirty five the United States got its first official manual on uniform traffic control devices. Which said stop signs should be a yellow octagon with black or red lettering. It wasn't until the nineteen fifty four revision of this nineteen forty eight edition of the manual at the red octagon with white letters became the law of the land. According to that document, the red color is consistent with the accepted use of a red light as a stop signal end of the Colorado as a special warning of danger. Furthermore, they explained that the original decision to use yellow instead of red was because red pigments were more likely to fade over time with exposure to the elements. However by the nineteen fifties. These state of California had solved the problem by using porcelain enamel to protect their precious read signs and higher durability red paints were becoming more widely available and like that red became the new yellow, but there's a question that goes deeper than uniform traffic, signaling protocol, why read is there any reason to think of red stop sign would work better than any other color getting drivers to stop zooming straight through intersections at eight miles per hour. One fairly obvious answer. Is that red is not as likely to blend in with the landscape as some other colors. This explains why the highway administration has repeatedly rejected our proposal for a green and Brown camouflage pattern. Stop sign. Another important point is that likely aforementioned manual says red is a color we consistently use dentistry warnings and peril. A think about the wrong way sign and the do not enter sign having consistent color coating helps drivers learn to identify specific colors with specific messages. So even if you only catch the hint of red sign out of the corner of your eye. You're more likely to react with caution. The way you've been taught there are also some behavioral research findings that might point to the inherent power of the color red command RBM, it's for example, a twenty-seven study published in psychological science found that male rhesus monkeys under test conditions or less likely to steal apple slices from human experimenters who are dressed in red. The monkeys didn't seem to care about the gender of the human experimental and were not deterred by green or blue clothing, but a red hat and t shirt were enough to make the monkeys cautious about swiping that fruit. Now, it's important not to read too much into that result. Those study was done on monkeys who. Could be reacting to read roll kinds of reasons. But it at least suggests the possibility that there is a primate instinct to associate red with dominance aurthority, and if humans share this hypothetical primate instinct, the difference between a red stop sign a yellow stop sign might be the difference between stop in the name of the law.
