FRA re-examined its regulations governing the securement of such equipment in light of the July 6, ´ 2013, derailment in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, Canada, which demonstrated the terrible consequences that can arise when a railroad accident results in a sudden release of flammable liquids. FRA’s inspection data since January 2010 shows significant non-compliance with FRA’s securement regulations, 49 CFR 232.103(n), with nearly 4,950 recorded defects in that time. Moreover, FRA has seen a number of serious accidents during rail transportation of flammable liquids since 2009, and there has been significant growth in these types of rail shipments since 2011. These factors lead FRA to the conclusion that additional action is necessary to eliminate an immediate hazard of death, personal injury, or significant harm to the environment, particularly in instances where certain hazardous materials are involved. As a result, FRA is ordering that each railroad take the following actions on mainline track or mainline siding outside of a yard or terminal to ensure 1 A vehicle, as defined in 49 U.S.C. 20301, ‘‘means a car, locomotive, tender, or similar vehicle.’’ E:\FR\FM\07AUN1.SGM 07AUN1
