Overview[edit | edit source]

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) was established in 1926. It is a separate entity from the Department of Transportation, promoting transportation safety through advice and recommendations to federal transportation agencies. Since 1967, the NTSB has investigated accidents in the aviation, highway, marine, pipeline, and railroad modes, as well as accidents related to the transportation of hazardous materials. It does not have regulatory authority.
