Great news! This was mentioned later in the article:

Quote:
Doty said the electric cars passed each safety test laid out by the FRA, which had never tested its assumption that the European cars were less safe.

"In every case, the equipment we wanted to bring in was equal to or better than what's running in the United States today," he said.
So, the FRA had no data and just made this blanket decision to force inferior products on American passenger rail? How arrogant and insular. It's no wonder our rail system is so behind other nations.
