Trucking expert witnesses may writes reports and opine on the Department of Transportation, trucking accidents, roadway noise, gross weight, and associated matters. In The Fix We’re In For: The State of Our Nation’s Bridges Transportation for America writes:
In recent years, most transportation agencies have delayed needed repairs and maintenance while focusing their energy on new construction. In 2008, all states combined spent more than $18 billion, or 30 percent of the federal transportation funds they received, to build new roads or add capacity to existing roads. In that same year, states spent $8.1 billion of federal funds on repair and rehabilitation of bridges, or about 13 percent of total funds. States currently have the ability to “flex” or transfer out up to 50 percent of their bridge repair money into other projects or programs.
