It didn’t take long — the first collision between a car and light rail.
But considering the hundreds of millions of tax dollars spent on light rail, and given our community’s libertarian streak and recent commitment to vandalism against photo radar, I’m wondering about this:

I’m not a huge fan of light rail, but crashing cars into moving trains seems a bit excessive.
UPDATE: This story reminded me of this video. Please drive safely.
