1 A penalty may be assessed against and only for a willful violation. The Administrator reserves the right to assess a penalty of up to $109,819 for any violation where circumstances warrant. See 49 CFR part 209, appendix A.

2 The penalty schedule uses section numbers from 49 CFR part 220. If more than one item is listed as a type of violation of a given section, each item is also designated by a “penalty code,” which is used to facilitate assessment of civil penalties, and which may or may not correspond to any subsection designation(s). For convenience, penalty citations will cite the CFR section and the penalty code, if any. FRA reserves the right, should litigation become necessary, to substitute in its complaint the CFR citation in place of the combined CFR and penalty code citation, should they differ.
