A Real Problem

When Nic was killed, Minnesota Law stated that the Light Rail were excluded from the traffic code, allowing Light Rail Operators to make deadly mistakes without punishment or consequences. Because of this loophole, the driver of the train that killed Nic faced no criminal penalties and continued to work for Metro Transit for several years. Drivers responsible for 300,000 lb vehicles on the streets that you drove this afternoon must respect the traffic laws, and must face consequences when they do not.
