Cargo Tank Trucks: Improved Incident Data and Regulatory Analysis Would Better Inform Decisions about Safety Risks
Susan A. Fleming (au)
Cargo tank trucks deliver gasoline and other flammable liquids daily for consumer use. Trucks are loaded and unloaded through external bottom lines that, after loading, may contain up to 50 gallons of liquid and are known as ńˇýwetlines.ńˇŁ Concerns have been raised about the safety of wetlines, since a collision may rupture them, releasing flammable liquid and possibly causing fatalities and property damage. The Dept. of Transportationńˇ╗s (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Admin. (PHMSA) is responsible for regulating the safe transportation of hazardous materials and has proposed rules prohibiting the transport of flammable liquids in wetlines. This report discusses (1) the extent that PHMSAńˇ╗s data reliably identify wetline safety risks; (2) options for addressing wetline safety risks; and (3) how well PHMSA has assessed the costs and benefits of addressing these risks through regulation. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
