This weekend there was another accident on Amtrak that left two people dead. It seems a train hit a work vehicle in the Philadelphia area where there have been several accidents in recent years. The Northeast Corridor is a heavily used rail line and you would think that the morons that run Amtrak would have the best possible safeguards on this route. Apparently not.
Still the bigger issue is that the rail system in this country is an utter disgrace. Indeed, traveling by train in the USA is a joke compared to the rail systems in Europe and Asia. This situation is a part of the crumbling infrastructure in the USA which gets worse by the day. The idiots running for president spend more time bickering about abortion than trying to improve the lives of Americans who want to travel safely by road, air, or rail.
