Too Many Teens Killed By Trains

No matter what the reason, it's always a tragedy when teenagers are killed simply because they mistakenly believe they are bullet proof and can't be harmed. In years past, I have watched in horror as some teens race their cars and motorcycles at excess speeds with huge smiles on the faces as they try to cheat death at every turn. In recent months, there has been a rash of deaths when teenagers have been hit by trains. Most of the time, these kids are killed simply because they are not paying attention while listening to music on iPods or cell phones - then they are hit from behind and killed instantly. For some reason most of these accidents are taking place in California and Texas. I wish there was a solution to this problem. However, teenagers always believe bad things only happen to other people – so these sad and tragic deaths are likely to continue.
