Gov. Cuomo Orders Safety Upgrades for NYC Trains

Following deadly derailment


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.
