Portland, Ore . – TriMet has tweeted out a compilation video of pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers all nearly colliding with MAX trains. Some involved drivers running red lights, other times pedestrians were walking out in front of moving trains. No one was hurt in these cases,but TriMet hopes the video will convince people to look both ways and always stay alert around MAX trains.
These are scary to watch! All of these close calls were easily avoidable by following traffic signals and looking both ways before crossing train tracks. Remember to always stay alert around MAX. pic.twitter.com/7K5ZRVYzTA
