We have had accident after accident, problem after problem.... [Car accidents] reminds us that every second counts. Every second could mean the difference between life and death. A couple years ago, we had a really bad fire just up the road here on the tracks. What happened was we could not get a fire truck to that location. We had to tear down a fence, go through people's property just to get water on a train that was burning out of control."
