SAFETY BOARD ASKS FRA TO WRITE RADIO RULES

The National Transportation Safety recommends that the Federal Railroad Administration: 1) Issues as soon as possible regulations to provide for the use of radio in railroad operations. These regulations should include the traditional safeguards found in existing railroads operating rules where they apply to train movements. It is further recommended that, in drafting such regulations, consideration be given to the principles and procedures for radio used by military and civilian aviation authorities. 2) Review and revise as necessary its accident reporting requirements and investigation procedures to insure that all facets of the involvement of radio or the absence of radio are determined and reported.
