NTSB to meet on ‘most wanted’ safety improvements

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will hold a public board meeting Feb. 18, to review its list of Most Wanted safety recommendations directed at federal agencies.

 

The Most Wanted List was developed in 1990 to focus attention on safety improvements the NTSB believes will have the greatest impact on transportation safety. Some of the issues to be reviewed this year include emergency helicopter medical services, intelligent highway technologies, motor carrier operations and operator fatigue. The NTSB will also discuss issues concerning rail car design and marine safety management systems.

 

A live and archived Webcast of the proceedings will be available on the NTSB's Website at http://www.ntsb.gov/.
