This paper addresses key econometric issues related to partial observability and identification due to endogeneity in transportation systems. The purpose of this essay is to bring to the forefront the identification problem in transportation systems stemming from partial observability. Inferences from recent work in pavement condition and traffic safety models are used to build this essay. Given the highly empirical nature of transportation contexts, sources of endogeneity and forms of exogeneity and consequent impacts on identification and parameter estimation are discussed.
