Blog Comment Policy


Connections is a forum for civil dialogue on various transportation issues.  DOT encourages the submission of comments from the public and hopes that interested individuals will submit thoughts and reactions on a regular basis.   DOT also hopes that commenters will bring to our attention projects and ideas that will help us ensure our nation has the transportation system it needs and deserves.

Connections is a moderated blog, and we expect this community to treat its members with respect.  All comments will be reviewed before posting, and a representative sample will be posted to the site.

While we welcome criticism, Connections will not post any comments that include personal attacks, slurs, or offensive language. 

There may be a delay in the posting of comments to the site. The comment in-box will be monitored during normal business hours, and comments will be posted during that time.

Thank you for visiting Connections, and happy travels!
