Fort Totten Metro Crash Opens Public Disclosures of Problems
Perhaps, these problems have been disclosed to agencies responsible for overseeing Metro but despite an avid professional interest in such information much of it is new to me. This can't make Metro officials happy because it reflects on their competence and also on how forthcoming they are about problems.
It is also places Metro in a difficult position in defending the lawsuits now piling up in The United States District Court for the District of Columbia and the Superior Court for the District of Columbia. Put simply, the Bay Area Rapid Transit system in San Francisco foresaw the majors problems which appear to have caused this incident and fixed them more than thirty years ago.
Makes it kind of hard for Metro to argue that this incident was not forseeable.
