The report constitutes the first chapter of a document dealing with major improvements in the highway system. The work has the object of finding ways to obtain improvements in system performance measures and in the social and economic activities using highway services. The report focuses on what needs to be done to achieve major improvements. This includes suggestions such as trials of new designs, following socially acceptable paths for change, and avoiding high transition costs. The approach proposed in this report is then contrasted with other efforts to improve highway services, including Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and implementing drastic controls. The author notes that an alternative approach must incorporate elements of these approaches in addition to adhering to established and acceptable patterns of decision making.
