GetHuman-reddthor's customer service issue with TriMet from March 2019

Help with my TriMet issue
The issue in GetHuman-reddthor's own words
Wes operators are not observing proper rail safety protocols on a frequent basis. My shop is immediately adjacent to the crossings on Lombard & Broadway and Lombard and Beaverton Hillsdale highway. I hear and see the trains throughout my day. I have observed them failing to engage their crossing lights (alternating flashing headlights) as well as not properly using horn signals for a crossing (long long short long repeated until lead of train is through crossing) there are times the operator will only honk once then enter the crossing, other times they seem to be playing with the horn (random meaningless honks) I have observed what I perceive as excessive speed when southbound to Wilsonville, and one time head lights were not on at all. This does not great any confidence in the training given to the operators of these get large potentially dangerous vehicles. This needs to be immediately addressed. I will continue to observe and may even take video if I have time.

GetHuman-reddthor did not yet indicate what TriMet should do to make this right.
