Move the tracks

Fresno needs to move the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks and place them in a less populated area. Too many people have been killed by these trains, both Amtrak and the freights that come through town. One of the people who was killed was my neighbor and good friend.

The engineers don't always blow the whistle at the crossings, as they are required to do. I live very close to the tracks, and I can tell if they do. In the most recent accident, I heard only the brakes and not the whistle.

Amtrak needs to slow down as it comes through town.
