Does anyone know why i can't make the DOT logo smaller? It appears to not be working! --Quadraxis 16:02, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

The Original DOT?[edit]

The US Department of the Treasury pre-dates the US Department of Transportation by 177 years. Is there any reason why Treasury didn't hold the acronym "DOT" first? Thanks.Signof4 01:42, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Well if you think about it and use "of" and "the", Treasury would be DOTT not DOT. If you don't, it's just "DT". So as you can see there's not an attractive abbreviation. It's usually just called the Treasury Department for short. --Triadian (talk) 23:50, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Budget[edit]

I understand that the budget request for DOT's 2010 fiscal year may be the amount posted, but a layman like me found it misleading of what the normal budget for DOT is. I had to go looking via Google to find a better idea of what the normal numbers are. Here is a site that I found useful that showed the 2009 budget request which was $68 billion: http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=8675 Don't know if you would find it appropriate to change that on the page or think about it.
