Trains provide an essential function in the American economy, transporting people and materials from city to city each day. Furthermore, light rail systems such as the Metrolink in St. Louis allow tens of thousands of people to move around the city each day without adding to traffic and having to pay to park their vehicles.
While trains are certainly an efficient way to move people and things from place to place, they also expose people to a risk of serious injury. In fact, In 2016, there were 9,808 train accidents and incidents in the United States, according to the Federal Railroad Administration.
