NOTE FOR DATA ON THIS PAGE: Hazardous materials incident data are subject to revision and correction by the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety.
Developments in computerized signaling and other new technologies have allowed railroads to reduce train accident rates 71 percent from 1980 to 2007. Taking through trucks off the highway will alleviate congestion in key highway corridors, reducing collision and accident potential between trucks and cars, and making driving safer and more pleasant.

Highway construction to add capacity or repair surfaces damaged by heavy vehicles is far more hazardous to drivers, passengers, and construction workers and takes longer to complete. Motor vehicle accidents or train derailments account for only a small portion of total number of hazardous materials incidents.
