    In a lot of areas, there are cameras installed at grade crossings, and a ticket is sent in the mail to any violators

    Speaking of red lights...I live a couple of blocks from an intersection that's cost 5 lives over a couple of years. Between the fools running the stop sign and the other fools speeding on the main drag, it's a sure-fire recipe for disaster....People just don't realize that a vehicle can be a deadly mode of transportation.

    I seen this posted on several other forums I am a member at as well as on the news. It really is sickening, and things like this, where there are kids involved, also tend to make me a bit angry.

    Being a full time stay at home Dad has made me extra sensitive to issues involving kids.

    I'll echo Gary's...

    ..thoughts. No sympathy for her. I feel for her remaining family. Can you endulge your thoughts as if it was you and you finally find out the results of your "judgement"? I think there was no judgement. It's what's becoming of society. No care, no thought. Just jump.

    Like the man said, "Can ya here me now"?

    I love stupid people. It's so entertaining.

    I've heard stories from drivers' that you can actually feel the bones cracking as the train rides over the person or animal- scary.

    The other day I went for a cab ride and the driver showed me where a horses body lay and 100 meters up the track (Up hill and trains going at 60kph) was its head.
