Railroad Safety Statistics 2003 Annual Report

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has established an ultimate goal of "Zero Tolerance" for railroad-related accidents, injuries and fatalities. This book is intended as a resource for the FRA's safety partners. It is also intended as a general reference source for individuals and organizations with an interest in rail safety issues. Statistical data, tables and charts are provided to depict the nature and cause of many rail-related accidents and incidents that occurred in 2003. This edition of the book compiles previous safety bulletins prepared by the FRA. These include: the Accident/Incident Bulletin; the Highway-Rail Crossing Accident/Incident and Inventory Bulletin; and the Trespasser Bulletin. The consolidation of accident/incident statistics previously contained in other publications provides the reader with a single source for a comprehensive overview of railroad safety.
