Misconceptions surrounding the safety of NH3 in transportation fuel applications and a lack of knowledge of the very positive safety information that exists in two, highly-credible safety reports have hindered support for NH3 as a transportation fuel.  This issue is very similar to the safety misconceptions surrounding hydrogen.  The information in existing safety studies combined with decades of acceptably-safe real-world performance in delivering NH3, the second most transported chemical in the world, proves that NH3 can be as safe or safer than existing transportation fuels.
