Last week, the Austin Transportation department was subject of a devastating audit:
The audit team identifies shortcomings in communication between city agencies and external partners, such as the Texas Department of Transportation and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. Characterizing the dynamic as a “‘silo’ approach,” the report points out that CTRMA will soon add a third traffic management center in addition to two others already separately operated by the Austin Transportation Department and TxDOT.


The report also raps the city’s knuckles for having what it describes as a largely reactive approach to transportation problems. It notes that the department’s “work is largely driven by requests received, mostly through the City’s 311 system.”


It goes on to criticize city agencies for not fully using crash data to implement actionable safety programs. It points out that traffic deaths on Austin roads have been trending upward, including a record number of fatal crashes in 2015.
The audit led Ellen Troxclair to ask several follow-up questions:

Bottom Line: Yet another reason to oppose having the city take over TNC background checks; vote FOR Prop. 1!!!
