Positive Bus Control

Rail safety is a real issue, but there's a tendency to react very strongly (and expensively) when there's an accident. Road deaths are just accepted as part of daily life.
Forty-two people were killed Friday near Bordeaux when a bus collided with a truck in France’s worst road accident for more than three decades.
“Around 7:30 this morning, a truck hit a bus, which then caught fire,” Gerard Dupuy, deputy mayor of the town of Puisseguin, southwest France, said on France Info radio. “It happened on a dangerous turn,” he said, adding that accidents had previously occurred there.
