The WHY Behind Drive SMART
50.5% of fatal crashes in the Permian Basin involve a single vehicle. Many of these crashes and fatalities can be easily avoided if drivers will increase their awareness behind the wheel.
Energy Task Force Meeting in the Permian Basin
The formation of a task force by TXDOT to look into the impacts of increased energy activity in the state was initially met with enthusiasm by many in the Basin, but that enthusiasm soon turned to disappointment when TXDOT later announced $40 million in funding for that purpose that completely excluded the Permian Basin.
Since that time, with the help of TXDOT Executive Director Phil Wilson, MOTRAN has been an active participant in the task force. In fact, in August, MOTRAN hosted one of the meetings here in the Midland-Odessa area.
