Did you pay at city hall? Usually if you pay the ticket within a time frame of when you were issued the ticket, they give you a "discount" on your fine

*they have with me when I've got tickets.... not 100% sure if that's how it actually works...

I work for the railway.. and for once, I'm glad to hear about someone being caught on them. By the police this time..

Usually.. it's the train that catches you. And you will always lose that one.. it's a mess.

Funny you should mention that. I was more interested in where the spelling and grammar police were. Too busy ticketing people for talking too quickly I suppose.

how the fuck does someone get hit by a train??? the people getting hit are people who are choosing to get hit and giving out tickets won't stop that.

thats like giving people tickets for walking on a bridge. some people decide to jump but most are just walking to get somewhere. shouldn't penilize everyone.

stupid law.

"how the fuck does someone get hit by a train??? "

How about being drunk/stoned or maybe even listenng to I-Pod. Get the tunes blasting in your ear buds and you don't hear anything. Had a kid on a skateboard riding towards me right down the centre of the street. He was listening to his I-pod and he skated right at me in spite of me blasting my horn four times. I braked and swerved away from hitting him and he finally noticed when he was about 10 feet away from my hood. I seem to remember press reports saying that it is quite common for people listening to tunes getting killed by trains when they didn't hear them coming. I agree that Darwin is behind these types of deaths.

For example...

That's right: they're not choosing it themselves; they are Darwin's chosen ones

Isn't walking on the railway considered trespassing? Is that not the ticket you get?

Yes it is. Railway tracks are private property. People should really be more concerned with what travels on said tracks, not the ticket.

Ok, I have to interject here because this sounds all too familiar.

If you're speeding in a car it's usually something else that causes you to crash (following too close, blow a light, etc..)

If you're walking on the rail lines with iThings in your ears and get hit by the train, wouldn't it be somewhat reasonable to assume your chances would have been a lot better if your ears weren't plugged with music?

Your chances of not getting hit by a train are greatly increased by not walking on the rails.
I don't feel bad for the people who get hit, I feel bad for the engineer who has to have that image in his head for the rest of his life.

Not walking on or close to the railway tracks should exclude you 100% from getting hit by a train, unless tains no longer travel on rails...I mean, have you ever seen a steering wheel on a train?

*edit*, confirmed the story, it was told to me incorrectly

On November 21, 1996, 17-year-old Paul WM Benner lost his life while preventing his friend from being struck by a commuter train in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. Mr. Benner and his friend had missed their late afternoon bus and, because of the cold weather, decided to take a shortcut home by walking along the train tracks. They had thought they would hear a train coming but when they heard the whistle blow, it was too late to escape the braking locomotive that was bearing down on them. The friend froze in shock. Without hesitation or regard for his own personal safety, Mr. Benner lunged towards her and pushed her out of the way. Because of his prompt and courageous action, the woman escaped certain death, but Mr. Benner was unable to clear the tracks in time and he sustained fatal injuries. For his actions, he was posthumously awarded the Star of Courage.

just to finnish my point. if your walking on the tracks while drunk/stoned then the ticket should be for public drunkeness because thats the issue. again anyone in their right mind has about as good a chance of getting hit by a train while walking along the tracks as being struck by lightning.

don't get me wrong, i've never walked along train tracks. i see no point. but its just a stupid ticket, thats all.

Trains are much more frequent than lightning bolts, but thanks for coming out.

I've been with the guys cleaning up a fatality... spray-washing the un-used pieces of brain tissue that were left on the brake rigging was pretty much the worst I've seen back at the shop. Pretty disgusting. That crew is still out of service, incident was four years ago.

I'm a volunteer for the Critical Incident responder program also. I'm often the first person to talk to the crew post-incident, and I've heard lots of gruesome stories. It even starts to get to me sometimes.. though I've never been involved in one personally.

This is a critical part of the process after such an incident. But then...this statement...coming from you really surprises me!

You have no idea what it's like, do you. Having that feeling of no control, that the situation is out of hand, constantly questioning what you could have done better. That crew needs to man up? If you can get over a human death so easily, I truly am sorry for you.
