Rail survivor warns of safety risks amid gro화천출장안마wing number of accidents THE MORNING PLUM: New York Times columnist David Brooks, who is widely rumored to be considering for president, weighed in on a disturbing report from the National Transportation Safety Board yesterday, saying it is “unthinkable” that the Federal Railroad Ad영주출장마사지ministration (FRA) might simply shut down its investigation into what’s been described as the “highest safety priority in transportation” at this time. https://www.cifnet.it/products/minnie-mouse-bubbly-pink-cover-custodia-12custodia4iphone547 For weeks now, the NTSB has been investigating a series of major train accidents that have cost Americans tens of millions of dollars. And there are good reasons for this investigation to be ongoing, some say. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/alabama-houndstooth-crimson-tide-cover-iphone-8-plus The safety of railroads must be our top priority, since, by any measure, train accidents happen at an alarming rate and there simply isn’t enough research going into this issue. https://www.cifnet.it/products/legend-juventus-o1028-custodia-cover-samsung-galaxy-s10 But Brooks said the safety of railroads is not one and the same. It’s more like it’s “very difficult” to find a safe way to get across an entire city without having to stop at a stop light. https://www.cifnet.it/products/my-chemical-romance-x0153-casing-custodia-cover-samsung-galaxy-s10-premium The FRA is focused in its investigation, he said, “on the safety of American transportation.” It’s a problem, he said, that doesn’t exist when it comes to railroads. We thought the issue of federal oversight of railroads was pretty serious when it comes to their safety problems. The problem is, he said, it’s been handled extremely poorly. At one point the FRA’s safety chief admitted that there is a higher priority for railroads than any other entity in the country: “The FRA is not looking at the safety of rail operations,” said Patrick M. https://www.cifnet.it/products/coque-custodia-cover-fundas-iphone-11-pro-max-5-6-7-8-plus-x-xs-xr-se2020-c20527-hamilton-an-american-musical-2-iphone-11-pro-case Fitzgerald, director of the Federal Railroad Administration’s Division of Public Safety and Emergency Services. “I think it is important to have a robust examination of the safety and security issues of the entire rail industry in the United States.” [emphasis added] But today’s Times report seems to raise the question that has vexed critics for at least six years now: Why is it that even as the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is examining these train accidents that have left victims with debilitating injuries, it hasn’t moved quickly enough in ensuring that the safety of its own staff is being looked into and handled properly? One영양출장마사지 영양출장샵 of the most common criticism lobbed at Fitzgerald is that the investigation in this case is focused too much on whether or not a train crossed over a train track during an accident instead of going over it.
