Oil Trains Could Pose a Danger For the Public

The U.S. and Canada use trains all the time to transport crude oil, but until new regulations get enforced, this could be putting a lot of people in danger.

Pipeline supporters say this shows the need for Keystone XL. These would carry oil from tar sands in Western Canada to Gulf Coast refineries. But according to North Dakota Senator, John Hoeven, after a year long review of Keystone, oil companies are still looking for pipeline alternatives.

Yesterday, accident investigators urged government officials to start enforcing new safety rules on these trains. As these oil cars are increasingly used, they worry an accident could turn deadly.
