The Times article regarding the construction of the Century Freeway (Part I, Dec. 27), stated with respect to Prof. Murray Brown: "Brown is paid $35,000 a year for his efforts but none of the lawyers in the case could think of an important problem he has solved." I represent the United States Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration in the case. I was not interviewed, or otherwise contacted, by the authors of the article, and I do not subscribe to the above-quoted statement concerning Brown.

The problem may be in learning about such fares because they may not be promoted in the United States.

On a peaceful morning in February, 1991, a fiery gasoline-tanker crash jolted this Sacramento suburb like a terrorist car bomb. Residents awakened about 3:15 a.m. to a thunderous blast after a fully loaded tanker truck rolled over, skidded 110 feet on its side and landed on a parked car in a field at the edge of a tranquil residential neighborhood. Incredibly, no one died. But property damage spread for blocks, including two homes that burned to the ground.
