The following is an annual report published by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) summarizing settled claims for civil penalty violations of Federal railroad safety and hazardous materials statues, regulations and orders during Federal Fiscal Year 2014.  The report also contains a discussion about the relationship between inspections and enforcement actions, as well as the number and rate of reportable accidents, incidents, and railroad safety.  This report only reflects actions taken during Federal Fiscal Year 2014.  It is important to note that, under Federal statute, claims may be open and unresolved for up to five years.  Every claim is different in scope and nature.  Accordingly, year-to-year comparisons of the information contained in this report should be examined in the context of these issues.  For more information on its contents, please contact our press office at FRAPA@dot.gov
