WORKING PAPER ON THE TRANSPORTATION OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS PROJECT OF THE DOT TECHNOLOGY SHARING PROGRAM

The paper summarizes the initial work of the Technology Sharing Program in the hazardous materials area. By no means a conclusive study on the topic, this paper is an information document that will be used as a basis for further study. The paper gives a brief introduction to hazardous materials transportation, and why there is currently great interest in this topic by state and local elected and appointed officials. It describes the major areas of hazardous materials transportation, and the major actors in the field (both government and non-government). The major issues concerning hazardous materials transportation as seen by state and local officials are presented, as well as a brief analysis of these issues.
