BART fought to keep controversial safety policy

Our media partner, the San Jose Mercury News reports that despite fines and warnings from both state regulators and unions following a 2008 fatality linked to the policy, BART stuck with it.

This week, the transit agency indefinitely suspended the policy days after two workers were killed by a BART maintenance train while inspecting tracks in Walnut Creek.

State lawmakers say they'll hold a hearing next month on BART worker safety.
