Report: Metro-North falls behind on safety upgrades

In a new report, government officials say Metro-North has fallen behind on its safety upgrades.



Officials at the Federal Railroad Administration released the report yesterday.



They say Metro-North is behind on installing a new technology aimed at reducing accidents.



They say railroads must make installing the new technology a priority and are calling on Congress to fund commuter railways.



Published reports say Metro-North responded to the federal railroad officials saying it is working hard to make its railways safer.
