  • I’ve learned (the scary way) not to run green lights. You have to slow down a bit and look both ways before proceeding. Evidently, being in a metal cage doesn’t guarantee your safety, either.

  • @taomom, that club of rome video is powerful. Thank you for the link.

  • I’d love to see how much BART spends on its police. Why is this not covered by local counties like Caltrain or *cough* Muni?

    Re: Muni Derailment

    MTA reports the derailment happened at 7:39AM. However, something happened at 7AM at Castro Station. The conductor on my inbound train announced a halt of service momentarily, then resumed the route to everybody’s dismay.
