NTSB to Hold Public Meeting on ‘Most Wanted’ Safety Improvements

The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a public board meeting Thursday, Feb. 18, at 9:30 a.m., in its Board Room and Conference Center, 429 L'Enfant Plaza, S.W., Washington, D.C. The board will review its list of “Most Wanted” safety recommendations directed at federal agencies.

The Most Wanted List was developed in 1990 to focus attention on safety improvements the board believes will have the greatest impact on transportation safety. Some of the issues to be reviewed this year include emergency helicopter medical services, intelligent highway technologies, motor carrier operations, and operator fatigue. The board also will discuss issues concerning rail car design and marine safety management systems.

A live and archived webcast of the proceedings will be available on the NTSB's Web site at www.ntsb.gov/events/Boardmeeting.htm. Technical support details are available under "Board Meetings." To report any problems, call 703-993-3100 and ask for Webcast Technical Support.

For those planning to attend the event, the Board Room’s front door is located on Lower 10th Street, directly below L'Enfant Plaza. From the Metro, exit L'Enfant Plaza station at the 9th and D Streets escalator, walk through the shopping mall, and at the CVS store take the escalator down one level. The Board room will be to your left.
