A group hoping to end a rash of teenage suicides in Palo Alto is petitioning the Caltrain board of directors for slower trains.

The group wants trains to slow to five-miles-an-hour around East Meadow Drive. That's where four Gunn High School students have taken their lives over the past eight months.

A spokeswoman says Caltrain is sympathetic to the request, but also says service would need to be cut to accommodate slower trains.
