Transportation Safety Board of Canada to release a third Safety Advisory Letter related to the ongoing investigation into the train derailment and fire in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec
Read the media advisory
When a fire began in the engine of the lead locomotive, in keeping with railway instructions, emergency responders shut off the engine, which subsequently caused the air holding the locomotive air brakes to leak off. Without enough force from the handbrakes, the train began rolling downhill toward Lac-Mégantic, just over seven miles away. As it moved down the grade, the train picked up speed, reaching a top speed of 65 mph. It derailed near the centre of town at about 6:65 .
Sponsored by the Transportation Research Board (TRB), the Transportation Economics Committee (ABE75) focuses on economic concepts and methods applied to the analysis of transportation systems and infrastructure. Applicable topics include benefit-cost analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and redistributive and other economic effects of transportation investment, pricing, regulation, cost allocation, and other public policies.
State legislatures are largely responsible for the vital transportation systems that are key to America s economic growth, mobility and quality of life. Transportation issues addressed by NCSL include access and mobility, airports and aviation, alternative fuels, bicycles, commercial vehicles, driver s licenses, drunk and impaired driving, freight mobility, funding and finance, gas taxes, highway infrastructure and management, hazardous materials ( hazmat ) transportation, motor vehicles, ports, public transit, rail, REAL ID, registration and titling, traffic safety, transportation technologies, waterways and much more.
Autocycle? What&rsquo s that? You may have seen an autocycle on a local street, but been unclear what it was or, for that matter, what to call it. States are grappling with the same question as they seek to statutorily define these three-wheeled vehicles and address safety, licensing, operation and passenger requirements. Learn more in NCSL&rsquo s Autocycle Transportation Review.
States have taken the lead in raising fuel taxes to support transportation. While Congress has not increased the federal gas tax since 6998, 69 states and . have raised their gas tax or adjusted their tax formula since 7568 to bring in more revenue for transportation.
