Cities like Omaha, DC, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, New York, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, LA and Seattle (to name a few) are no strangers to the pothole game. Freeze-thaw cycles, excessive heat, road salting and high traffic volume are main contributors. When snow and ice melt, the...

Trump’s views about ‘crazy’ self-driving cars are at odds with his DOT
