While overall Maryland and the District of Columbia have very safe transportation systems the sheer number of people using them and the nature of the buses and trains utilized results in catastrophic injuries on a fairly routine basis.
'Twas only yesterday that I expressed amazement that the train operator who evidently accelerated in the vicinity of safety inspectors on the tracks was still, at least as far as the public knew, operating Metro trains. http://www.maryland-law.com/library/metro-track-worker-safety-is-there-any.cfm

And what to my wondering eyes should appear but an article in our favorite hometown paper noting "After near miss with safety inspectors, Metro train operator is disqualified". http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/08/AR2010010803639.html

Wow!
