I wonder how soon the count will go up when the University line starts. Or, maybe they will list trains under a different category.

Hats off to traffic control officers and the designers, implementers, and enforcers of these programs. The significant reduction in serious crashes is too great to be solely the result of high gas prices or a recession. I am happy to know that the safety efforts directly translate into safer roads for me, my family, and friends.

"Its called a recession. We are still in one" Was GDP growth must be negative for two consecutive quarters and I missed is somehow? The period from 2008 to 2012 included a chunk of the great recession, so that probably impacted the numbers. We had cash for clunkers also, which got the less safe older cars off of the road. Now if we get Google to drive us all around, we'll be golden.
