    2) have the train slow down before it gets to its destination, so its going like 5mph when it comes into its stop
    A third is to have signs up people can read so they know what to actually do if they are in that situation

    I also thought of that railing idea. The trains always stop at the same location every time. So why not just have barriers in the areas where the train doors aren't located?

    "The announcement had come over the loudspeaker that the train was coming and out of the periphery of my eye, I saw a body flying through the air and onto the track.

    "I just started running. I had my camera up it wasnt even set to the right settings and I just kept shooting and flashing, hoping the train driver would see something and be able to stop.

    "I had no idea what I was shooting. Im not even sure it was registering with me what was happening. I was just looking at that train coming."
    This is ********. He wanted the shot and he got it. If anything his flash probably distracted the train operator from noticing anyone was down there. The fact that this photographer is getting a bonus or raise for getting "the shot of the year" and not trying to save the guy is recockulous.

    And for #2, it would slow the system down too much. And in any case, a person would die if a train hit them, at any speed
    you could out run it down the tracks at 5 miles an hour though

    Allegedly? Erm

    Nah some buzzed asian dude tried to break up a fight and the other dude threw him onto the tracks...for some reason beyond my understanding having a nip on your persons and being tossed into an oncoming train makes you at fault?

    Anyone with a brain would just duck underneath the platform if a train was that close.

    In NYC, there's almost no difference between being a street vendor and being a homeless person.

    People don't always think logically in fight or flight situations like that. If they have signs that they see everyday while waiting for trains then the correct behaviour is more likely to me instinctual.

    In NYC, there's almost no difference between being a street vendor and being a homeless person.
    Lol good point
