This Just In!

I just heard not more than 5 minutes ago that the LIRR is finally doing something about the gaps at Flatbush! Major construction? Adding a plank to the platform? NO!!! All to simple. They're just going to only open the first 4 cars at each track. Genius! Sure.....

Apparently they plan on doing this at other dangerous stations. This is to keep people from falling into the gap. It's the cheap and quick fix. What they seem to be forgetting is how overcrowded the open cars will soon become. What they are forgetting is how they tell us not to walk through the train cars while the train is in motion. I only see disaster ahead. The LIRR should suck it up and repair each platform. These quick fixes will only lead to more accidents.
