Also, there are many more trains in the New York City area. And more accidents there. And they have more rules and regulations, so rules and regulations don’t work.
Plus, it appears it was the driver’s fault. Trains don’t kill people. People kill people. If that driver didn’t have a train, he’d have a bus or a plane. So there’s no point in any investigation into train safety or regulations. It’s a mental health issue, not a train issue.
It is the price we pay for freedom.
