Australians Really Know How To Make Their Point
In several earlier posts I’ve talked about the ongoing problem of trains hitting cars at grade crossings. Just yesterday, there was a report of a fatal accident in a suburb of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I see similar reports from around the U.S. probably three or four times a week.
The Aussies, of course, are much more in-your-face about this than we would probably be. Take, for example, the large billboard in the Perth railway station:
YOUR FAMILY WON’T HAVE TO SCATTER YOUR REMAINS.
THE TRAIN WILL DO THAT FOR YOU.
Point taken, eh mate?
