Hoboken Train Crash

U. S. Senator Charles Schumer asked New Jersey Transit (NJT)  to follow the 2008 Federal Railroad Administration's (FRA) recommendation to install inward facing cameras in the train cabs, in the wake of the deadly crash of the NJT commuter train in Hoboken, New Jersey on September 29, 2016. This should not only help determine the cause of crashes, but it should also help deter bad behavior itself. The NTSB reported that the train was at 8 mph with the throttle in the idle position less than one minute before the crash but then the throttle was increased nearly 40 seconds before the crash, and the train maxed out at 21 mph before crashing.
