Five Metro employees were disciplined in July for not following safety protocol. Each and every day, Metro customers are in more danger than ever. Most Metro workers do not do a good job of opening Metrorail cars, and if the job is not done, they should be fired. Period. Just last week, I saw a station manager at Metro Center sleeping. Somebody had to hit the window to wake him up. This should not be happening. I now refuse to ride the train until the system is fixed. Remember friends, our safety comes first.
