This week is Rail Safety Week. The theme this year, “Stop Track Tragedies,” provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the need for rail safety education and calls attention to ways to stay safe near highway-rail grade crossings and railroad rights-of-way.
In this episode of Behind-the-Scene @NTSB, we talk with Member Jennifer Homendy and Ruben Payan, Railroad Accident Investigator, Office of Railroad, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Investigations, about NTSB investigations and recommendations for staying safe near the tracks, and other rail safety issues.
