Hundreds of experts on the topic of getting people from point A to point B are in D.C. this week for an international conference.
The Transportation Research Board 90th Annual conference is here, and that means decision-makers from across the globe are gathering in D.C. to talk about the latest innovations in the field -- everything from high speed rail to new ways to pave roads.
One of the groups in town for the conference is the newly-formed Distracted Driving Safety Alliance, a coalition of technology companies that work with the wireless industry. These companies are developing apps that can detect when you're driving and then disable your cell phone.
The conference continues through the rest of the week.
