The National Transportation Safety Board’s chairman Deborah Hersman and her fellow board members released the 2013 Most Wanted List of safety recommendations November 14 because, according to Hersman, “Transportation will be a big topic in the 113th Congress…We want to highlight our priorities and help assure safety has a seat at the table.”

This year’s list includes an increased focus on improving airport surface safety, better detection of fires in all transportation modes and a continued look at the stubbornly static small aircraft accident record. The new U.S. Congress convenes January 3.
