Another death on Meadow crossing?

Original post made by What's happening, Midtown, on Jan 23, 2010

Does anyone know more details about this? Isn't there supposed to be professional guards watching the crossing?

First of all the volunteers watching at Charleston are not professionals. Most of them are concern, caring parents at the local high schools, who are hoping that their presence will discourage or deter people from going into the tracks. Yes there is a paid guard, but again they are not "professionals" they, like the parents are there to deter people from going inside the tracks. Obviously, the volunteers and guard job could be a lot easier if the lights would not take so long. It is awfuly dark in there and you cannot see everything. We have to rush the city to finish the lights, that will be a big help for volunteers and the guard, so we are not working in the dark.

The rain also may have made watching the location harder

What are the hours for the paid guard?
