Against the backdrop of several recent train crashes, Metrolink officials are set to roll out new cars designed to better withstand deadly wrecks on one of the nation’s most perilous rail systems. A Los Angeles Times report in September identified several rail crossings along the San Fernando Valley corridor as especially dangerous, including the one at Buena Vista Street in Burbank. The new rail cars, designed with “crush zones” that collapse to absorb impact, will be the first in the nation to use the technology, Metrolink spokeswoman Angela Starr said.

I did not have time to go to any hearings - just wanted to give a shout out to Taco Bell.

Laura Sturza The City Council is poised to accept state funding Tuesday for emergency battery-operated traffic signals, hopefully making drivers and pedestrians safer as they navigate streets. Though drivers are supposed to proceed through intersections as if they are four-way stops during power outages, they often "blast through them," Police Lt. Wade Taylor said. "Where people are coming off the freeway, you have a big possibility that people are not going to be courteous to one another," Taylor said.
