Broken Monorail Updates

A shuttle, costing 25 cents, will replace the Grey Line. It's got extened hours on New Years Eve, so you can stumbe home safely.

Human error caused the Seattle monorail accident. The inbound [i.e. southbound] driver failed to yield to the other train at the point where the tracks are too close together for passing, officials said Wednesday...

Seattle Police reported Wednesday that drug tests on both drivers by an independent lab showed "illegal substances were not a factor in the accident..."

Investigators found the accident was not caused by failure of the signal system or the trains themselves. The internal review exonerated the northbound driver.
Poor southbound chap.
