Fences won't prevent train deaths

Paso Robles



 Railroad fencing? What’s next, fencing streets and highways?

How about teaching our kids to use common sense? Maybe there should be a memo to the schools to have a common-sense awareness day. In Europe, if you walk up to a cliff (Rousillon in Provence, France, for example) and fall off, too bad for you: no lawsuits. Amazingly, people don’t fall off. They use their noggins.

Railroad fencing is the last thing taxpayers should be forced to pay for. Let’s give people a little more credit here.
