What the Motorman Saw - New York Times

An article regarding death on the tracks the train conductors and motormen of the subways here in NYC have to deal with. What struck me was this quote from a former conductor:

"You go to Great Adventure and you're standing on line for a roller coaster, and you can't get near the tracks because there's a barrier," he said. "You go down into the subway station, and all that's between you and the tracks is a yellow line. And subconsciously, we all realize how vulnerable we are. That yellow line is all that's there."
