Trimet Admits Pedestrian Deaths Were “Preventable”

In an article published in the Oregonian last Saturday, it’s reported that an independent consultant found deficiencies in Trimet’s safety training procedures.  In the wake of an obviously poorly trained driver killing two pedestrians in a Portland crosswalk, Trimet admits pedestrian deaths were “preventable”.  The driver, Sandi Day, faces six traffic infraction charges.  Trimet and its driver must both take responsibility for the tragic and wrongful deaths that never should have happened.  In addition, Trimet clearly needs a major overhaul of its training practices.
