    TSA is seeking permission from the Office of Management and Budget to conduct security-related assessments during site visits to approximately 750 owners and operators of highway transportation assets (such as long-haul trucks) as well as 140 public transportation agencies.
    Under an initiative known as the Highway Baseline Assessment for Security Enhancement (BASE) program, TSA will seek information that can help it develop policies and programs. “TSA’s Highway BASE program seeks to establish the current state of security gaps and implemented countermeasures throughout the highway mode of transportation by posing questions to major transportation asset owners and operators,” says a TSA notice published in the Federal Register on Nov. 30.
    Similarly, TSA wants to conduct on-site assessments with public agencies that run buses, rail transit, long-distance rail and less common types of service, such as cable cars, inclined planes, funiculars and automated guide way systems.
    The public has until Dec. 31 to submit comments about this TSA information-gathering request. Further information is available from Susan Perkins, of TSA, at 571-227-3398 or TSAPRA@dhs.gov.

    Good! This is another black eye for anyone that smugly suggests that if you don't like the TSA, don't fly. ^

    Why would an EvilDoer go to all the work of pulling up spikes somewhere? Derailments are boring, when you could really have a big 'splosion in a populated area by just moving a truck loaded with 55 gallon drums of gas past a crossing.

    They want to do to for ground transportation what they have done for air travel.

    Time to fortify your vehicle.

    If the clerks ever come near the MARC Brunswick Line, it will be a serious mistake. There will be casualties.

    odd. when I read this account of TSA's attempted foray into our lives outside the airport, I got this thread confused with Mike's other thread on public masturbation.

    Was that a "Freudian slip" of the mind? ;)

    actually, it's a pretty good description of the TSA's activities.

    Actually my thread was about Mastersbation, although I doubt the average Gropenfrau can spell either.
