Caltrain was silent for 22 days on human error of two engineers. Both engineers are currently on leave one of them tested positive for marijuana.
On August 24, 2012 at 8:25AM at the SSF station, the northbound train stopped and let some passengers off who started to cross the southbound tracks only to discover the southbound express upon them at a speed of 76 MPH with no warning. Some people had to jump for their lives.
Caltrain has a safety policy of look both ways and I think this was an extreme and perfect example. They also managed to keep this out of every newspaper in San Mateo County until this last Saturday. I think we all deserve an answer as to how did not one newspaper covered this.
