Bluelinkx Global Community - Ultimate News Detail Page - New talks fuel hopes for end to S.F. transit strike

Oklahoma State University transportation engineering professor Samir Ahmed, who has studied rail transit safety, said he would be surprised if the strike did not somehow factor into the accident.
"When you have a strike like what is happening at BART now, communications are poor in general," he said. "The strike environment causes confusion." That the two inspectors were hit by a train shows that critical information was not relayed either to the workers on the track or the people operating the train, Ahmed said. "There should have been someone at the controls there talking to the workers and talking to the train engineer," he said.


2009 February 26 | Motorcycle Safety News

Dr. Samir Ahmed, Professor of Transportation Systems & Engineering at the Oklahoma State University (OSU) Transportation Center told Motorcycle Safety News he is more than just a little frustrated.
Ahmed is to head the Motorcycle Crash Causation study, a four-year project intended to forensically examine 900-plus motorcycle accidents over a three-four year period. For me to do any work, I have to have an account," Ahmed said of a spending budget needed to do preliminary groundwork while he awaits results of a pilot study begun a couple months ago and due in March or April by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While assurances of government funding came in summer 2006, and required matching funds were more than anted-up by the motorcycle community in summer 2007, Ahmed said he has been unable to do anything because he has been denied permission by his administration to start a "finalized work plan." "These are the things I need to do right away," Ahmed said of formulating research questions, making arrangements with subcontractors and more, "I should have done them a year ago at least." Ahmed, however, emphasized that unlike the Hurt Report, countermeasures were deliberately not being suggested, and the new study's scope will only address crash causation, not propose solutions - although he acknowledged concerns from diverse agendas remain. After about 30 such test cases, the protocols will be handed to the FHWA and Ahmed at OSU's Transportation Center to finalize the work plan for the national study of another 900-plus accidents to be conducted in still not fully determined Sun Belt areas. This number is considered a bare minimum and originally 1200 test cases had been desired. Ironically, Ahmed said, the national study was supposed to be a natural and seamless continuation of the pilot project. "It appears that we are not going to benefit much from the pilot project," Ahmed said, "These trained investigators are going to go look for something else to do.

Dr. Samir Ahmed, the Oklahoma State University researcher who has been heading up the latest motorcycle crash causation study, announced that he was leaving the program in a Sept. 11 e-mail stating; "I am writing to let you know that I am no longer working on the motorcycle crash causation study.


Landmark motorcycle crash causation study progressing slowly in America's heartland | MCN

Dr. Samir Ahmed, Professor of Transportation Systems & Engineering at the Oklahoma State University (OSU) Transportation Center told Motorcycle Safety News he is more than just a little frustrated.
Ahmed is to head the Motorcycle Crash Causation study, a four-year project intended to forensically examine 900-plus motorcycle accidents over a three-four year period. It is only the second of its type in American history, and has been described as badly needed. Its data would be used to help reformulate "countermeasures" and redevelop training and strategies intended to prevent motorcycle accidents. But the wheels are turning slowly in Oklahoma. "Everything is frozen. For me to do any work, I have to have an account," Ahmed said of a spending budget needed to do preliminary groundwork while he awaits results of a pilot study begun a couple months ago and due in March or April by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While assurances of government funding came in summer 2006, and required matching funds were more than anted-up by the motorcycle community in summer 2007, Ahmed said he has been unable to do anything because he has been denied permission by his administration to start a "finalized work plan." "These are the things I need to do right away," Ahmed said of formulating research questions, making arrangements with subcontractors and more, "I should have done them a year ago at least." Ahmed, however, emphasized that unlike the Hurt Report, countermeasures were deliberately not being suggested, and the new study's scope will only address crash causation, not propose solutions - although he acknowledged concerns from diverse agendas remain.

This number is considered a bare minimum and originally 1200 test cases had been desired. Ironically, Ahmed said, the national study was supposed to be a natural and seamless continuation of the pilot project. "It appears that we are not going to benefit much from the pilot project," Ahmed said, "These trained investigators are going to go look for something else to do. All the agreements with the agencies in California will just die gradually." His statement is of course based on whether the OSU project does get started. But OSU's Tree said there is no cause for concern, and expects funding should be forthcoming and he is willing to wait, and said the study will get the job done right.
