  • it's america. when someone dies, someone else pays. and as we are all too aware, there are plenty of attorneys out there that will make spurious claims to drum up a settlement. like in the case where some idiot rode her scooter around the gates while the lights and bells were going off. i'm sure some a-hole lawyer will say that the gates, lights and bells were insufficient, confusing, scary etc etc.

    funny stuff. with the nightmare that is the commute from NYC/LI to EWR, UAL shot their feet off leaving.

  • Brightline started service in south florida several years ago. every singly grade crossing is controlled by gates, lights, bells and whistles. still, a shocking number of people have been killed. 85 train vs. car/pedestrian incidents in 4+ years. https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/d...beach-13717396

    i'm not saying that crossings shouldnt be protected. they should be. but brightline proves quite unequivocally, that protected crossings wont protect people from their own stupidity, or death by train for that matter.

  • and there are things called cerebral vascular accidents (strokes), aneurysms, myocardial infarctions, pulmonary emboli etc, etc. so are you advocating that all airline pilots go for total body CAT scans on, say a quarterly basis? can't be too safe ya know! a stroke could easily cause failed perception which could lead to wrong control inputs. aneurysms as well. shoot, any number of things could and do happen. pilots even die in the cockpit.

    this was a case of pilot error. thankfully it resulted in nothing more severe than a broke airplane....

  • i guess that you would want to get rid of all the people that drive manual transmission vehicles as well. i mean, based on your "logic" and ass-umptions, i'd be nailing the clutch when i mean to hit the gas and nailing the gas when i mean to hit the brakes....

    let's talk about the fact that this particular pilot had over 19,000 hours flying time and 3000 hours on type. under evan's rules, a guy with a likely major error free career deserves to get axed.

    i am in no way defending his actions, but knowing exactly as much as you do evan, from watching mentour video, i'm certainly not gonna say i don't want him flying me around. in fact, there's a decent chance he has flown me around once......
