Gov. Andrew Cuomo has told the New York City transit system to adopt several safety changes following the deadly derailment of a commuter train.
Cuomo directed the Metropolitan Transportation Authority on Friday to expedite speed controls for areas vulnerable to crashes on the Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road commuter systems.
Cuomo also wants to accelerate efforts to install technology called "positive train control," which could automatically bring a train to a stop if it's exceeding a speed limit.
