We know that the last thing you think about on a regular basis is trains. However, we want you to consider that our own Metrolink, the one that so many people in this city rely on, is a train. Now consider just how many train tracks we have in the state of California and you can understand the potential for injuries. The Federal Railroad Administration says that there were nearly 12,000 total train incidents in 2017, causing:
Train companies have a huge responsibility and so do the inspectors who maintain the tracks. All trains and tracks should be regularly inspected and maintained. If they are not, crashes are inevitable.
Train and Metrolink operators must always follow proper protocol and they should be fully trained to do their jobs appropriately. There have been cases of subway and Metrolink accidents around the country involving operators who were distracted by their phones or other devices. This is negligent behavior that causes people harm. We also know that no train operator should ever be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while at work.
Whether we are dealing with a public transportation Metrolink, a passenger train, or a train that is carrying goods, these all have the potential to cause major injuries for passengers are well as those near the scene of a crash. If a train is carrying hazardous materials, a crash can become a regional disaster involving thousands of people.
