Subject :Tragedy highlights inadequate investments in rail: Letter to the editor

While news reports focus on excessive speed in the Amtrak Cascades tragedy, they fail to recognize the underlying cause. In industrialized nations around the world passenger trains travel safely and much faster. While excessive speed contributed to this tragedy, the real cause <a href="http://www.authenticseahawksstore.com/12th-fan-jersey-c-1_2.html">12th Fan Jersey</a> is long-standing government policy. We fail to make adequate investment in a mode of transport that <a href="http://www.packersprosale.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey-c-1_18.html">http://www.packersprosale.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey-c-1_18.html</a> is inherently safe and efficient in terms of life, land, energy, labor, the environment and cost.

Generally speaking, government policy discourages investment in railways by requiring private funds be used <a href="http://www.giantsprosales.com/odell-beckham-jr-jersey-c-1_11.html">http://www.giantsprosales.com/odell-beckham-jr-jersey-c-1_11.html</a> to acquire, develop, maintain, police and signalize nearly all rail rights-of-way, and taxing both the right-of-way and the improvements thereto.

 

The safest and most efficient form of transport must be extremely conservative in investments because railways compete with highways, aviation facilities and inland waterways which rely in part or in whole on taxpayer dollars and public backed bonds to acquire, develop, maintain, police and signalize their rights-of-way, which are not taxed.

 

An example <a href="http://www.authenticgiantsshops.com/lawrence-taylor-jersey-c-1_45.html">Lawrence Taylor Jersey</a> specifically relating to Monday's tragedy is traffic control. Our tax dollars <a href="http://www.mapleleafsprosale.com/james-van-riemsdyk-jersey-c-1_24.html">James Van Riemsdyk Womens Jersey</a> pay for the development, implementation and operation of air traffic control. Railway companies are <a href="http://www.bengalsproclub.com/aj-green-jersey-c-1_2.html">A.J. Green Jersey Womens</a> expected to cover nearly all such costs without significant help from Congress. To identify the underlying cause of yesterday's tragedy, <a href="http://www.laulerie.com/jerry-rice-jersey-c-1_25.html">http://www.laulerie.com/jerry-rice-jersey-c-1_25.html</a> we must look outside the cab of the locomotive.
