"Over 40 years ago, the noted transport historian, L.T.C. Rolt, wrote: ĎA railway accident is always news. Governments may fall or battles be fought and lost but no matter what the crisis of the hour may be, a derailment or a collision involving a relatively small loss of life will be sure to command a banner headline in the popular Pressí.
Intensive media coverage still has the potential to influence the publicís perception of risk on the railway, despite the major improvements that have occurred since the above lines were written. The Annual Safety Performance Report (ASPR) gives a full and detailed account of recent safety performance, so that people both inside and outside the industry can base their views and decisions on the true state of safety on todayís railway."
