The D.C. Metro has come under fire in the media recently for problems with maintenance and new policies.
"All too often, threats to public safety are simply disregarded by Metro, and problem employees are kept on the job even after they commit safety violations or are responsible for accidents. Metro has been informed that it has 'dozens of problematic escalator brakes.' On Oct. 30, a faulty escalator brake at L’Enfant Plaza Station injured six passengers, making the escalator slide downward and dump passengers in a pile at the bottom of the escalator."
The availability of pure gasoline is declining.
