ACTIVITIES RELATING TO TITLE II PORTS AND WATERWAYS SAFETY ACT OF 1972
The problem of reducing the risk of collisions, groundings, or other accidents to tank vessels in our ports, waterways, and coastal waters is a more complex problem than either the Coast Guard or the Congress anticipated when the Ports and Waterways safety Act of 1972 was enacted. Like many other complex problems the number of factors involved and their interrelationships make human intuition a poor tool for determining what solutions are appropriate. The Coast Guard is attempting to collect the necessary knowledge as rapidly as our abilities and resources will permit; at the same time we are proceeding with regulations and other corrective measures which are appropriate and justifiable.
