Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl- Why are there so many train accidents in South Florida? We have written several times about Brightline and not favorably. I along¬†with many think there is something other than stupid drivers going on. Now I understand most of the cases, unfortunately,¬†involve suicide¬†and or pedestrians or drivers with bad judgment decisions¬†made to beat the train.
Yes, we have gone as far as to call Brightline¬†The Death Train as we think there¬†is something¬†with the signaling and timing on those trains. That¬†said there is still way too many train wrecks in South Florida. We were fortunate yesterday and earlier with the derailment of the¬†Tri-Rail¬†a few days ago that there were¬†no injuries.
Seems to us there is an increase¬†in both train vs pedestrian and train vs vehicle collisions on the rise.
