Cell Phone Danger On The Rail

Recent study indicates that cell phone use on the highway, both by voice & yep, text messaging & driving may soon or already is nearly as great a danger to innocent motorists as drunk driving!!

It would be natural then that society's carnage on highways by motor vehicle drivers from the misuse of technology would spill over to America's railroads. Latest instance:

From Yahoo News:
On May 8, more than 50 people were injured when a Boston subway trolley plowed into another train. Authorities say the 24-year-old operator, Aiden Quinn, went through a red signal while typing a text message on his cell phone. Quinn was indicted earlier this month on charges of grossly negligent operation and he faces three years in prison if convicted.
