Comment on Council asked to consider spectre of transport accident involving radioactive waste by Jim Brough.

As someone who was responsible for the shipment of radioactive materials for medical and industrial use I knew the standards required for the transport of them by any means.

The dangers of transport are nil but the word radioactive elicits alarm beyond belief.
The world is naturally radioactive. I am and you are so take care before you talk about the danger of transporting or storing radioactive waste.
