No mistake here, the headline refers to the hazards of railroad accidents in America. It is still a very real situation. In The Great Southwest trains are traveling at high speeds every day. Did you know that in 2016 there were more railroad injuries than any year in the last decade? You would think that it is getting safer, but it’s not!
Why is this? Well, train usage continues to increase in New Mexico and the surrounding states. Here are some of the main reasons for train accidents –
1. The structure and maintenance of the tracks
2. The equipment of the railroad company and its age
3. A faulty signal
4. Of course, human error
