Re: More fodder for the thievs And I can't picture John Lennon as a spokesmodel for a signal in subway stations.
| || |said by djdanska:I don't see why people need to dial 911. The train operator can summon help via the radio system. Why clog up the 911 system with people panicking because of a train derailment? The train operators and conductors have a direct line to transit police and other emergency services. The transit operator has to coordinate anyway. said by IowaCowboy:
Boston has reception in their tunnels but it is spotty. They do near Government Center because a light rail operator was texting and he crashed the trolley into another trolley. I'm sure the MBTA fired him. The PVTA cracked down on cell usage by the bus drivers as they have to exit the bus before they use their phone.
It's definitely spotty but it was proven worth while after one of the subway trains derailed in the middle of the tunnel a few years ago. People where able to dial 911.

Am I the only one who thinks the guy in the photo bears a remarkable resemblance to someone who's been in the news a lot lately?
It's John Lennon.
