It is great that the FRA is taking such proactive steps to ensure the safety of the railroad industry in this digital era. I am very interested in learning more about the details of the Peer to Peer programs that the FRA and LaHood have be advocating to be implemented by rail carriers. Creating a culture of awareness is always a great step towards safety, however it should not be the last step. The idea behind the peer program is great, because it creates an internal enforcement mechanism amongst employees to stop using devices while working.

This problem is similar to the texting while driving problem that has created a substantial danger while driving on the road. Perhaps various state departments, such as the California Office of Traffic Safety, can create a similar peer to peer/passenger to driver program to help combat this growing danger.
