What is going on with these rail incidents?

This month, there has been an abundance of incidents involving subways and commuter railroads, in and out of the NYC Metropolitan area - - from the idiot woman trying to be a stuntwoman with her SUV on the Brighton Line on March 19th.  Less than 12 hours later, a cement truck driver strikes the elevated 1 line at Broadway and West 133rd Street, bending the el tracks and forcing southbound 1 line trains to run express from 137th Street to 96th Street (after it was briefly shutdown in this area)e shutdown between Dyckman and 96th Street stations for nearly 24 hours.  Last week in Chicago, a CTA Blue Line train jumped the bumper block and landed on the escalators at O'Hare terminal injuring at least 30 people.   

Despite the recent rash of rail incidents, public transportation is the safest way to travel.
