This does not surprise me at all, lived in the greater Houston area for 10 years and it is extremely car-centric, and drivers are among the most bobble-headed I’ve experienced. Portland has its share of collisions with light rail but usually it is impaired drivers or someone Darwinizing themselves by not looking.

What a cool way of culling the green tooth goober herds! Every city and town in GI Geebusstan needs one of those systems.

So what have we learned here? You just DO NOT turn left anywhere in Houston! OUCH!

Must be nerve-wracking being the operator of one of those trains. You’ve got to believe there are half a dozen close calls for every collision. Old locomotives had “cow-catchers” on the front–shouldn’t there be a bunch of those still around in Texas?

I think people are learning just to stay off of main in downtown and off of Fannin in the Med Center. I think that was the plan all along. They even made a section of Main pedestrians and trains only.
All this is going to start again in a year and a half when the University line opens.

IT IS A TRAIN GIVE IT SOME RESPECT PEOPLE. You would guess that a giant piece of steel and glass that size would get people to pay attention.
Perhaps the problem is that it glides as softly as a cloud.
Is there a chance the track could bend?

Not on your life, my Hindu friend.
What about us brain-dead slobs?
You’ll be given cushy jobs.
Didn’t this already happen in Inception?
