Amtrak Now On Alert After Reports Of Drug And Alcohol Use By Train Operators

As reported in the Washington Post, Mechanics, Operators, and Engineers who work on Amtrak trains have been using drugs more often over the previous 6 years. This was uncovered by a Government watchdog and it is a serious concern.

When we put ourselves and our children onto an Amtrak train – we are assuming that we’ll be safe. And if the people that operate and perform maintenance on the trains are abusing drugs – then our safety is compromised.

So while it is good that this report has surfaced, it is certainly an alarming issue which much be addresses right away.
