Eliminate Cars/Drivers Except When Security Dictates

At Dept of Transportation Headquarters, only the Secretary/Deputy Secretary of Transportation use a car with driver. At DoD -- and at executive agencies in and around Washington -- there are many senior officials who use a car service for meetings across the river. In this era of excessive government spending, I don't think taxpayers would be pleased to see civil servants driven to meetings -- and the annual cost of the fleet of vehicles, paid drivers, and gas might be eye-opening. Recall Rep. Boehner gave up his plane when he became Speaker of the House -- it's a good example for other officials.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
