Why don’t rail transportation operators sue the people who drunkenly stumble into the paths of oncoming trains? The damages to equipment is non-negligible and the costs of service delays are surprisingly high. N.B. 1. Public intoxication is against the law (for the obvious reasons!). 2. It is impossible to steer a train into the path of anyone who is not already where they are prohibited from being (or anywhere else for that matter – trains go straight along the rails, nowhere else). You can lean or bend into the path of an oncoming train, the train cannot go out of its way to hit you. 3. Trains cannot stop on a dime. F=ma. And for anyone who thinks the trains operate at unsafe speeds… Are you for real? Do we really want the trains going any slower?
