ABSTRACT

National Transportation Safety Board 2005 Annual Report to Congress   [open pdf - 3MB]

"To date, the NTSB [National Transportation Safety Board] has issued about 12,350 safety recommendations pertaining to the various transportation modes to more than 2,200 recipients. Because the Safety Board has no authority to regulate the transportation industry, its effectiveness depends on its reputation for conducting thorough and accurate investigations and for producing timely, well-- considered recommendations to enhance transportation safety. In 2005, the Safety Board issued 84 safety recommendations and closed 142 recommendations, 111 of which were based on actions classified as 'acceptable.' In aviation, 29 were closed 'acceptable'; 37 in highway; 8 in pipeline and hazardous materials; 10 in marine, and 27 in rail. The Board also updated its Most Wanted list of vital safety recommendations targeted to Federal regulators and the States."
