DC's Metro: No Security

They Can't Even Make the Trains Run on Time

Just a few weeks ago, during a week-long Washington Post expose on negligent maintenance, the director of Metro had metro workers handing out flyers on why the post report was wrong. That same day, a horrific collision between metro trains in a tunnel under the Potomac was avertered only when the two train drivers realized they were headed toward each other. (The track circuits had apparently failed days before). On top of that on any given day, about a 1/4 of metro's escalators aren't working. (I don't mind climbing stairs, but some escalators are more than 500 steps.).

On top of that, Metro has zero any subway system probaly does. Need to rethink the commute.
