INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY. HEARINGS BEFORE THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON INVESTIGATIONS AND OVERSIGHT, COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC WORKS AND TRANSPORTATION, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, 103RD CONGRESS, 2ND SESSION, FEBRUARY 10 AND MARCH 2, 1994
These hearings examine the Department of Transportation's (DOT's) process for determining its safety priorities, allocation of safety resources, and strategies for ensuring safety in all modes of transportation. In the first hearing, Secretary of Transportation Federico Pena outlined his plans for improving the coordination of safety issues at the DOT; Dr. John Lauber, member, National Transportation Safety Board, discussed the cross-modal aspects of transportation safety; and Kenneth Mead, Director, Transportation Issues, Resources, Community, and Economic Development Division, U.S. General Accounting Office, discussed three aspects of transportation safety--(1) strengthening the DOT's capability to minimize the risk of accidents, to be more proactive and less reactive, (2) using better data to strategically target the inspection resources and increase regulatory attention to high risk areas, and (3) positioning the Congress and DOT to better assess the safety of each mode and the relative investment made in safety. In the second hearing, representatives of all the modal administrations at DOT provided detailed information on the DOT's intermodal safety policy. Included in these hearings are testimony and prepared statements of witnesses, and prepared statements submitted by members of Congress.
