So there’s a movement afoot to stop trains from blowing their horns.
Which, in the first place, I have always known as whistles.
But I’m digressing.
What the people at stopthehorn.org want is for rail crossings to have is crossing arms. Instead of train whistles.
Now. Trains have been crisscrossing America for what? Two centuries?
They’ve certainly been running through there longer than those houses have been there, and it’s not like they were hiding them when the new owners moved in.
Horns and whistles and bells on trains are safety devices. They’re loud so that you know before you get right up on the crossing arm that you’re about to run up on a train crossing the tracks.
I know they’re loud. They’re supposed to be loud.
That light on the front is pretty damn bright and makes my eyes hurt. They should get rid of that thing, too.
