NO excuse for “zoned out,”
The Problem is that Public Transportation Does Not have any kind of Safety Restraints in Case of Rollovers or Head-Ons
At Least the Airlines figured it out Long Ago that Liability Insurance Rates for Injuries goes Down when You Require Seaty Belts

zoneing out is no excuse, hundreds of lives are in your hands. you have one job and your not even really required to do much but stay awak and applie the brakes...i hope he loses his job and the families who lost loves one are given some kind of support...maybe im being harsh, but the way i see it. his excuse is intolerable and inexcusable.
"Zoned out". I'm thinking of all the times that I've done that. Yes, it happens. Wonder what his working hours are like. I recall times that I've been headed home after to many hours on the road. Mind wanders, for God knows how long, I search for a landmark to decide exactly where I am, and I realize I've already crossed a bridge that requires close attention because it's so narrow. Scary stuff - and a train operator is little different than a truck driver.
