HAIF - Houston's original social media

Recommended Posts

Smalley said that because average daily rail ridership hit an all-time high over recent days, probably due to use by evacuees, he is concerned about evacuees' safety because they are not familiar with Houston's transportation system, especially the rail.
Maybe METRO and the City should put up signs warning visitors not to go near any trains or busses because they are not familiar with them. That sounds like a typical METRO attitude, that all accidents are the fault of others and not theirs.

I'm not sure I understand how it could be Metro's fault that someone crosses RAILROAD TRACKS with headphones on? Logic would dictate that if you're in that situation that you would at the bare minimum, look up and check to see if it's safe to cross. What if that same person were to wear headphones and cross a street without looking for oncoming traffic...it wouldn't be their fault then?

1. A New Orleans resident ought to have been familiar with tracks on the street.

2. Since headphones reduce the ability to make a safe decision while crossing, one shouldn't have them on while crossing. Having headphones while driving is just as bad of an idea.
