The National Transportation Safety Board will meet to discuss two safety issues: eliminating alcohol-impaired driving and the January 26, 2012, allision of the cargo vessel Delta Mariner with the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge near Aurora, Ky.
Item 1: The Board will consider its safety report, "Reaching Zero: Actions to Eliminate Alcohol-Impaired Driving.” The report describes the scope of the impaired-driving problem, summarizes previous and current efforts to reduce impaired-driving crashes, and includes safety recommendations to address impaired driving. Eliminate substance-impaired driving is on the NTSB's Most Wanted List.
Item 2: On January 26, 2012, at approximately 9 p.m. (CST) the M/V Delta Mariner, a U.S.- flagged cargo vessel travelling on the Tennessee River, collided with the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge, tearing away a 322-foot span of the bridge including a portion of U.S. Highway 68. There were no injuries on the vessel or highway and no pollution was reported.
