Streetfilms: Meet Veronica Moss, A.U.T.O. Lobbyist

Ever wonder what folks working for sustainable transportation at the
federal level are up against on K Street? For this Streetfilms
exclusive, we were granted unfettered access to Veronica Moss,
lobbyist for the Automobile Users Trade Organization (AUTO). Veronica gave
us a few precious moments inside her SUV to talk about roads, traffic,

  • "People need to be able to drive their cars — that’s an American right!"
  • "Bikers are a pimple on the butt of any city."

If you love Veronica, make sure to check out our mockumentary on The Search for the Zozo, where she also makes an appearance.
