    Putting veteran drivers on the most difficult CTA routes makes sense in terms of safer operation. I hope they’re able to improve this situation – and reduce crashes and injuries.

    There should also be “undercover” monitors who ride to make sure drivers are following the law and best practice. Maybe not to punish initially, but rather to figure out what parts of routes are most challenging and begin to address what I see as pervasive failing yield to pedestrians, red-light running, and blocking the box.

    Why do the main newspapers in this town always get up in tizzy when it comes to bus, train, and bike incidents but then stay relatively quiet on automobile safety? Which one injures and kills more people in the city every year?
