D.C. Metro Fails Again … and Again

Apr 25, 2016

There was yet another fire on the Washington, D.C. Metro Monday morning. What gives? They shut down the system for a whole day and claimed they fixed all those jumper cables. Apparently not.

On top of that, federal safety inspectors found that Metro is failing to provide safety protections, like working fire extinguishers and clear escape routes.

The only thing Metro got right is the perfect recipe for disaster: fires plus empty fire extinguishers and no way to escape!
