RED 51 - Buffer Stops

Following a number of buffer stops collisions over the last few years, this episode of RED looks at some of the reasons this might be. The focus is on fatigue and distraction.


We also hear from RAIB about their report into the Sandilands tram crash, which killed seven people; and look back at why RED was created and some of the major topics we’ve covered.
