Transportation accidents - on land, in the air, or at sea - cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year. Because of this, federal regulators at agencies like the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are intent on raising awareness about preventable causes of transportation accidents and how individuals, lawmakers, and government authorities can help reduce incidents involving these types of incidents.
Earlier this month, the NTSB released its 2015 Most Wanted list, which details its top 10 transportation concerns, their causes, and suggestions for how to best address them. Here are some of the issues that made the NTSB Most Wanted list:
Other issues on the Most Wanted list included enhancing public helicopter safety, improving rail tank car safety, positive train control, improvements for general aviation, and requiring medical fitness of transportation operators. Although these issues are widespread and difficult to solve, raising awareness and working on ways to solve them can help reduce the number of preventable accidents we see among all types of transportation systems.
