Of course, we should all respect and be careful around the railroad tracks. Ironically, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal didn’t heed his own advice as he stood just inches from the tracks during his own rail safety presentation as can be seen in this KHON2 News video.
Just as the speaker said, “Safety as you know is paramount,” a train whizzed by just inches from hitting the Senator himself!
That’s embarrassing and could have ended much worse!
