The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is moving forward with National Transportation Safety Board recommendations after a slew of recent Metro-North accidents, including the derailment in the Bronx that killed four people in December.

The agency plans to ask the board to take requests for proposals to install video and audio monitoring systems in driver cabs on both Metro-North and the Long Island Rail Road.

The cameras will record activity both inside and outside the trains.

Investigators say that cameras would have helped figure out if operator error was the cause of the Bronx derailment.

The MTA also wants Positive Train Control on the railroads to prevent human error.
