HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION

A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW WAS CONDUCTED ON PROBLEMS IN HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION AND SUGGESTIONS MADE TO IMPROVE PRESENT PRACTICES. AN ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF CONDITIONS IN GENERAL IN UNDERDEVELOPED AREAS SHOWING HOW THESE REFLECT INEFFECTIVE ADMINISTRATION IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS. THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND LESS ADVANCED COUNTRIES IS NOTED AND ASCRIBED TO THE DIFFERENCE IN PSYCHOLOGICAL MATURITY. THE ROLE OF LOCAL LAWS AND POLICIES IS NOTED, INCLUDING AN ANALYSIS OF THEIR EMPLOYMENT IN CIVILIZED AND UNCIVILIZED AREAS.

FOUR RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE FOR BRAZIL WITH RESPECT TO HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION' /1/ REFORMULATION OF PROCEDURES, /2/ APPROPRIATE SELECTION OF HIGHWAY OFFICIALS, /3/ CREATION OF A PERMANENT SECRETARIAT FOR ALL AGENCIES INVOLVED IN HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT, AND /4/ ADAPTION OF ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS AND ACTIVITIES OF OTHER LEADING COUNTRIES IN ROAD DEVELOPMENT.
