The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the National Academies in making each published report as sound as possible and to ensure that it meets the institutional standards for quality, objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. The committee thanks the following individuals for their review of this report: Robert Atkinson, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, Washington, D.C.; James Card, U.S. Coast Guard (retired), Spring, TX; Genevieve Giuliano, University of Southern California, Los Angeles; Michael Goodchild, University of California, Santa Barbara; David Greene, University of Tennessee, Knoxville; Deborah Hersman, National Safety Council, Itasca, IL; Michael Manville, University of California, Los Angeles; Lance Neumann, Cambridge Systematics, Cambridge, MA; Clinton Oster (retired), Indiana University, Bloomington, IN; and James Winebrake, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY. Although the reviewers listed above provided many constructive comments and suggestions, they were not asked to endorse the critical transportation issues outlined in this report, nor did they see the final draft before its release. The review of this report was overseen by Robert F. Sproull (National Academy of Engineering), University of Massachusetts Amherst; and Sue McNeil, University of Delaware, Newark. They were responsible for making certain that an independent examination of this report was carried out in accordance with the standards of the National Academies and that all review comments were carefully considered. Responsibility for the final content rests entirely with the authoring committee and the National Academies. trb | transportation research board28
