    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Amtrak train P098 has struck an auto on the tracks at Atlantic Blvd in Pompano Beach.

One fatality, one walking wounded, searching for child thrown from vehicle. All train traffic shut down on CSX line, including Tri-Rail while they work the scene and investigate, likely 3-4 hours.

Operations on Pompano fire tactical channel C (36272 decimal) and BSO district 11 area 2 (33584 decimal).

All this because somebody couldn't wait 25 seconds for a short, high speed passenger train to pass.

The construction was the complete replacement of the tracks at the grade crossing of Cypress Creek Road, not Atlantic Blvd.

Even so, I must presume that if this guy was driving that he is not blind, thus he can see that there is nowhere to go on the other side of the tracks. The gates came down, the warning lights were working, the train sounded its warning horn. What more did this moron need to warn him of the impending danger of being on the tracks? He doesn't have to worry about that any more, because he's dead. Darwin was right.

I leave you with this final thought -

I can tell you EXACTLY where the train will be: ON THE TRACKS! So stay off 'em!
