January 24, 2020 Part I - Vol 132 No 133
Greetings!

This month we are going to feature a series of articles on how the transportation industry in California fell into the terrible mess it is in today created by Assembly Lorena Gonzalez from the San Diego area.

Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Lorena was a labor leader and organizer, serving as the first woman and first person of color to be elected CEO and Secretary-Treasurer for the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, AFL-CIO. Lorena also previously worked as the Senior Advisor to California’s Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante, and she served on the California State Lands Commission and the California Coastal Commission.

It is my job to bring to you the information needed so that you can make your own judgement – Remember, Knowledge is Power. 

NTA’s Hi-way Hi-Lites is intended to enlighten our members as well as our transportation friends on developments within the transportation-related industry and should not be regarded or relied as any type of legal advice or opinion.

Join the NTA and let us help you shine. For questions, please contact NTA President & CEO Wayne Schooling at wayne@ntassoc.com or 800-805-0040.

Ticket Quotas are Alive and Well
For a little change of pace, if you ever wondered about ticket quotas, let me tell you that by our latest count, twenty states have explicit laws banning traffic ticket quotas.

A brief rundown of the states with quota prohibitions follows but first, courtesy of reporting by TheNewspaper.com, here are just a few of the abuses uncovered in 2019: ....
