Highway Users Alliance Endorses Federal Highway Administration Nominee
WASHINGTON, DC – The American Highway Users Alliance strongly supports the nomination of former National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator Nicole Nason as the next Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
Highway Users President & CEO Greg Cohen commented, “The Federal Highway Administration needs a leader who will work diligently to drive down the traffic fatality rate and focus on road safety. Ms. Nason is an excellent choice to lead the agency in its safety efforts. Her background at NHTSA and MADD gives her an incredible depth of knowledge on these pressing issues.
“Additionally, Nason’s extensive expertise in vehicle safety is extremely helpful as the burgeoning autonomous vehicle era begins. If confirmed as the new Federal Highway Administrator, she will lead the agency as it sets minimum safety standards for such vehicles, making her a great fit for the job.
“The Highway Users fully supports Nicole Nason to become the next FHWA Administrator and urges a speedy confirmation.”
