Two weeks remain before the March 20, 2017, deadline to submit comments on the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) proposed General Directive 17-1, which addresses the dangerous combination of unsafe conditions and practices that lead to stop signal overruns.
The proposed general directive would require rail transit agencies and State Safety Oversight Agencies to work together to understand the significant risks of death, injury and property damage associated with stop signal overruns, establish methods to reduce the risks, and monitor the implementation and effectiveness of those methods. The proposed directive would require rail transit agencies to use Safety Management System principles to identify, evaluate, and help avoid or reduce the frequency and severity of the consequences of stop signal overruns.
