Four suicidal deaths in 14 days.  Shocking.

The statistical comparison with BART is completely inappropriate.  BART has no public grade crossings.  Presumably, the BART incidents happened in stations where persons jumped in front of trains or possibly made contact with the third rail.  Again, presumably in stations.

BART used to have a problem with some riders squeezing in between cars on the outside of trains.  That was stopped years ago with welded fingers that now prevent that.
