In the crowded streets of the city, between fuel costs, day-to-day bills and rush hour traffic, many people seek alternative modes of transportation. From the bustling downtown area of Phoenix to the hot nightlife scenes of Tempe, the light rail is a popular method of public transportation. There also some parts of Phoenix and Mesa where trains still run through the city. While these trains certainly serve an important function and provide a convenient service to the people of the Valley, they can also be a significant hazard. While they are few and far between, train accidents can and do happen, and these accident injuries can be serious.
