When traffic is really, REALLY bad on the freeways, I’ll sometimes cut through downtown to get home. Today was one of those days.
While traveling to the house from downtown, I use a road that has the light rail train tracks running between the lanes. The traffic was really slow on this road too, so I noticed, for the first time, that they had this warning sign about every 5 feet along the tracks:
I was hoping to take a picture of all of these signs lined up – but couldn’t get the angle. Portland has a thing with their signs. They tend to go overboard in the name of safety.
Ironically enough, these signs didn’t stop someone just a day or so ago from walking across the tracks and getting hit by one of these trains. Guess that they need more signs.
