This book examines the privatization of roads in theory and in practice. The authorssee at least four possible roles for private companies, beyond the well-known one of working under contract to design, build, or maintain governmentally provided roads. These include testing and licensing vehicles and drivers; management of government owned facilities; franchising; and outright private ownership. Two chapters describe the history of private roads in the United Kingdom and the Unites States, and several chapters examine strategies for implementing privatization. Street Smart makes a powerful case for the need and change and sheds light on complex issues involved.
