Sensors added to old LIRR escalators

Full story: MyFoxNY

About two weeks after a woman was asphyxiated when her clothes got entangled in a Long Island Rail Road station escalator, the railroad announced it will install new sensors on its oldest escalators.

I also had a problem with that escalator. It should've been inspected more and in use more. With all the big bucks that the railroad executives make maybe they need less executives and lower salaries so they have the money to repair equipment. How tragic that a lady died because of the escalator. The railroad doesn't even have anyone in most ticket offices any more. Everything is sold by machine and therefore there is no security at most train stations. They don't even have humans answering the phones for most train info. With all these employees gone, the salaries are gone, and they can't fix things with the outrageous prices that the tickets cost? How sad for the lady's family.

I never had a problem with that escalator. How could you let your 89 year old mother take the train by herself. I don't get it.
