A group of parents in Palo Alto is asking Caltrain to reduce the speed of its trains after a rash of student suicides.

Parents say the trains should travel at five miles per hour between West Meadow Drive and Charleston Road -- that's where four Gunn High School students have committed suicide since May.

Parents have been monitoring the tracks and they say the trains go too fast.

They've started an online petition drive and hope to bring their idea to a Caltrain board meeting on December 3rd.
