Visit the website of the National Transportation Safety Board (www.ntsb.gov) to examine each of its six kinds of accident reports (aviation, hazardous materials, highway, marine, pipeline, and railroad). Describe the elements of the reports. How would you describe the writing style of the reports? What kinds of illustrations do you find integrated into the reports?
Do the reports offer satisfactory descriptions of the accidents? Do the reports offer clear and convincing evidence of the causes of accidents? Do the reports make a persuasive case for changes in practices or materials to improve safety?
