I am extremely disappointed that FTA is not including trespasser and suicide-related fatalities in the Safety Performance Measure "count". These two types of fatalities are, together, the largest cause of death on U.S. rail transit systems and on the general railway system.
Can you clarify two things: (1) Does this exclusion also apply to injuries? That is, if someone is injured but not killed in a trespassing or suicide-related safety event, do those injuries "count" in the agency's Safety Performance Measure and Target? (2) Why has FTA made this decision to not simply use the data as reported to the NTD? Won't this make it harder to track trends consistently across all U.S. transit agencies?
