Enforcement of Rail Safety Improvement Act Necessary in Wake of Train Tragedy

The recent September 29th New Jersey Transit derailment tragedy in Hoboken, New Jersey could have clearly been prevented if New Jersey Transit had followed the positive train control law enacted by congress in 2008.

In 2015, I posted an article on our blog urging railroads to engage in “Positive Train Control” on all major lines. To date, New Jersey Transit, who owned the subject track where this accident occurred, has absolutely no positive train control system in place, despite the existence of the 2008 Federal law. More troublesome is the fact that New Jersey Transit has no plans in place to install such as Federally Mandated System.
