ABSTRACT

Hazardous Materials Unsecured: Terrorist Use of Trucks and Trains a Major Threat   [open pdf - 229KB]

"Tens of millions of tons of toxic chemicals, radioactive nuclear waste, commercial explosives, flammable gasoline and other hazardous materials are transported every year by trucks and trains across the country, through American cities and towns. Since September 11, 2001, little has been done to assure that these shipments are secure from attacks by terrorists, which could, in the worst case scenario, expose cities to leaks of deadly chemicals or explosions that could kill or seriously injure thousands, possibly even millions, of Americans."
