have contributed to a cleaner environment. Atlanta was also expected to follow the ozone standard in 2010. For safety, Atlanta has reduced its fatality rate in vehicle crashes and roadway clearance times. Moreover, in order to evaluate road quality, the Pavement Condition Evaluation System was created in order to determine the condition of the state and region’s highways. The ratings for the pavements have sharply dropped after 2005. The 2010 rating for the pavements was 62. The Georgia Department of Transportation is liable for evaluating the roads with a score below 70 and deciding whether or not overlaying the pavement is necessary. 3. In order to promote sustainable development for the transportation system within Metro Atlanta, I would recommend for safety is to have records of traffic accidents that have lead to death. For instance, if a certain region of Metro Atlanta has an unusually high number of traffic accidents, the reason why such accidents occurred should be taken into account. Also, the cameras installed on the freeways throughout Metro Atlanta should also be placed throughout other roads that experience heavy volumes of vehicles on a daily basis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
