    It's sad to hear about another fatality due to a lack of safety measures at NY subway/train stations.The people who should be working to assure passengers waiting for a train have a safe environment don't seem to care one bit about it. A simple solution of guardrails could be a first step. Something's not right when a concern over wire grill brushes and supersize sodas supercede ANYTHING being done about subway safety where a multi-ton train can injure or kill people waiting. There's no reason the greatest city in the world can't accomplish this.
