Yellow Line Safety Issues

Now that it seems to be legal for someone to push someone else past the yellow lines and there are no longer ttc safety officers to assist, I would like to know what the TTC will be doing to protect the commuters that use the system every day.

There has been talk of security barriers being to costly but what about two young lives. If you feel the same let the new mayor of Toronto know your concerns. He is all about Transit changes. This would be a huge one.

It is not at all legal. The link is not saying this.

THE ACCUSED HAS A MENTAL ILLNESS THAT PREVENTS HIM/HER FROM UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LAW.

Yes but on other high speed train systems like the one in France they have auto doors that close until the train comes. Also my issue is that on crowded platforms like Union Station there really should the following:

1) officers to watch the situation and assist.

2) some sort of had rail that someone can grab onto to brace themselves if someone is pushing them towards the tracks. It doesn't have to be fancy doors like in France but a simple bar. What it would mean is when a train enters the station they would have to try and line up the doors like they do on the go train for the accessibility car.

Its only a little work but it could save lives.
