For more than a year, the MTA knew Baltimore’s subway tracks violated safety standards before the emergency shutdown last week.
According to the Baltimore Sun, 17 of the Metro’s turns were deemed to be “deteriorated to the point where no train movement is allowed” in a November 2016 evaluation. But the trains continued running for more than a year in anticipation of track replacement scheduled for this summer.
MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn said, “Our riders were never in any danger.”

Monique Johnson They were waiting for a lawsuit
Tabitha Mccoy Ain’t no question that they knew. It would shutdown in the tunnel every morning inside of the tunnel and I would be late for school. They definitely knew.
Michael J Thb Just goes to show, Money before Safety…..Their priorities vary depending on the zip code it reflects.

dalife4eva I’m just trying to understand do they realize the danger they put people in just to not spend money the ends doesn’t justify the means
