A Q train derailed in Brooklyn this morning

Can we go one month without an insane transit incident, please?

This morning, yet another train derailed in NYC. At around 9am, a Q train headed south jumped the tracks in Brooklyn near the Brighton Beach station. Thankfully, there were no injuries, but some B trains have been suspended and Q trains are running on the N line, and neither lines are running from Brighton Beach right now.

So far this year an Amtrak train derailed in March, an NJ Transit train derailed in April and an A train derailed in June. That’s not a good look. How about fixing all the issues with the tracks instead of focusing on new floor mats
