China Speeding Ahead with High-Speed Rail
Question is, would you get on one, like going to the observation deck of the 220 story building they want to build in a 3 month span.
Last year 40 people got on one and were killed in a wreck. Many others were injured. They've had a few other problems with these trains not to mention corruption problems. Here's a somewhat less enthusiastic take:
But apparently here in California Governor Moonbeam is making sure we'll spend several billion on one of these going to nowhere from nowhere (sorry, but the first stretch runs from Merced to Fresno and there's no assurance for money beyond that).
paid for by all your walmart purchases!
With it being a 7 hour ride, and us being car addicted, maybe they should think about a high-speed autotrain.
Does seem as if they are moving too quickly in every direction. No, I wouldn't want to take a ride on one. Perhaps in Japan or Europe. China's moving so fast they're bound to be a bit lacking in safety protocols or building standards.
High speed trains remind me of Airplanes from the safety perspective. Normally very safe, but when something happens, it generally results in a high fatality rate due to the high speeds/non-normal operating factors involved with them. If that makes any sense.
Whereas the car may be slower and more prone to an accident, the fatality rate is much lower.
Exactly. Considering the deadly shortcuts made in making baby formula, I don't think I'd trust these companies either.
