Travel safety is one of the most important objectives of the overall supervisory agenda. Consumer protection and public safety intersect in this topic. Keeping travellers away from harm and maintaining safe and orderly routes and equipment should be the top priority of any commercial entity providing transportation to consumers. At the same time, companies working in the transportation sector look to legal and regulatory requirements to set minimum standards for safety infrastructure and motivate investments in technology and human capital improvements. Regulatory action, or inaction, can therefore have a huge impact on protective measures and responses to threats to safety taken by companies such as airlines, rail transit operators, and private transportation providers.
