"There is no permitting required — you can put oil on rail and nobody can complain," said Sandy Fielden of RBN Energy, a Houston-based consulting firm that has tracked the oil-by-rail boom.
Transportation or Transport Law encompasses federal and state laws governing the conveyance of passengers or goods, especially as a commercial enterprise, pertaining to both the method and the means. It includes highways, mass transit, aviation, rail, maritime and motor carriers. It also covers traffic safety, hazardous materials and pipelines. Public carriers such as airlines and shipping lines are also subject to state and federal legislation. The laws that govern drivers are largely state created and governed.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) establishes overall transportation policy for the U.S. The Department works with applicable state and local offices to decide policy regarding highway planning, development and construction; urban mass transit; railroads; aviation; and the safety of ports, highways and oil and gas pipelines. There are several other federal agencies that govern transportation law, including the Federal Highway Administration, The Federal Railroad Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, The Federal Maritime Commission and others.
