Paul Lewis, vice president of policy at the Eno Center for Transportation, said its unclear how rigorous this data sharing with the government will be. "None of these [safety points] have standards associated with them," Lewis said. "It could be that a tech firm will write, ‘We will consider safety.’ Is that enough? It’s hard to judge what the value of this is."

Where do infrastructure dollars produce the most gain?
Though it's hard to make national comparisons, the good news for empiricists is that more infrastructure decisions are merit-based, incorporating cost-benefit analyses. It turns out big, cement-pouring projects to deliver new long-distance highway or rail networks tend not to deliver the highest benefit.

How Republicans in Congress Would Respond to Big-Spending Infrastructure Push
“In 2009, there was this consensus in Washington that something had to be done to get people to work, and transportation investment was a key part of that,” said Robert Puentes, the president and CEO of the Eno Center for Transportation, in an interview with The Daily Signal. “But that’s not the climate now.

And if you do them wrong, they can be a big white elephant."
