The downside of train transit

Recommended Posts


That's a terrible tragedy. We really need more railroad grade separations, everywhere.

I don't know the situation surrounding this incident, but everyone needs to remember. Be MORE careful crossing railroad tracks than you are crossing a road! Even if trains only come by once a day. Regardless of whether you're in a car or on foot. Unlike cars, trains can't swerve and can't stop in time.

Tragedies like this can be avoided. Always! expect a train.

How are accidental deaths the downside of train transit any more than they are the downside of all heavy transport?

Miss Deaf Texas could have been killed just as dead by a car, an airplane, a motorcycle, or an ox wagon. In fact, I shudder to think at how many Miss Deaf Texases were slain in automobile accidents during the time it took to write this post.

Here we have a misleading topic title that should be changed.

Lol, I was thinking the same thing. When I first read the topic, I thought, oh great, one person dies by train and someone is gonna use that as an excuse to knock rail transit by branding it unsafe. I don't think that was really the poster's intention though.
