ACTION: Notice of Adjustment of Nationwide Significant Risk Threshold. SUMMARY: In accordance with Appendix D to Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 222, Use of Locomotive Horns at Highway-Rail Grade Crossings, FRA is updating the Nationwide Significant Risk Threshold (NSRT). This action is needed to ensure that the public has the proper threshold of permissible risk for calculating quiet zones established in relationship to the NSRT. This is the third update to the NSRT, which is being increased to 18,775 from 17,610. DATES: The effective date is September 1, 2009.

FRA developed this risk index to serve as one threshold of permissible risk for quiet zones established under this rule across the Nation. Thus, a community that is trying to establish and/or maintain its quiet zone pursuant to 49 CFR part 222 can compare the Quiet Zone Risk Index calculated for its specific crossing corridor to the NSRT to determine whether sufficient measures have been taken to compensate for the excess risk that results from prohibiting routine sounding of the locomotive horn. (Alternatively, a community can establish its quiet zone in comparison to the Risk Index With Horns, which is a corridor-specific measure of risk to the motoring public, when locomotive horns are routinely sounded at every public highway-rail grade crossing within the quiet zone.) In 2006, when the final rule titled, ‘‘Use of Locomotive Horns at HighwayRail Grade Crossings,’’ was amended, the NSRT was 17,030 (71 FR 47614, Aug. 17, 2006). In 2007, FRA recalculated the NSRT to be 19,047 (72 FR 14850, Mar. 29, 2007). In 2008, FRA recalculated the NSRT to be 17,610 (73 FR 30661, May 28, 2008). New NSRT Using collision data from 2004 to 2008, FRA has recalculated the NSRT based on formulas identified in Appendix D to 49 CFR part 222. In making this recalculation, FRA noted that the total number of gated, nonwhistle-ban crossings was 39,065. Fatalities 358 = Fatal Incidents = 287 1.2474 1008 Injuries in Injury-Only Incidents = 1.4237 Injury-Only Incidents = 708 of the 39,065 identified crossings and the predicted cost of the associated PO 00000 Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: 202–493–6299 or e-mail: Ronald.Ries@dot.gov); or Kathryn Shelton, Office of Chief Counsel, FRA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: 202–493–6038 or e-mail: Kathryn.Shelton@dot.gov).
