High Speed Rails is an incredible form of transportation that allows for people to go from one city to another in an extremely short period of time. It allows for people to attend their jobs from out of town without having to pass a massive amount of money on gasoline, car insurance, the car itself and so much more along the way. Unfortunately High Speed Rails can prove to be a massive liability for large cities across Northern America.
The reason for this is because high speed rails have trains going at such a fast rate of speed that it cannot slow down at certain points on the railroad. Along the railroad there are certain area’s which are designed to allow for the train to slow down without derailing off of the track. This means that a terrorist can easily put a bomb on one of these trains and set it off at a certain location without the train ever being able to stop, even if someone on the outside world knew of this bomb there would be nothing they could do. There is no plane or helicopter that could land on the train and anyone who tried to walk on top of it would be shot off into the sky instantly.
This is why many of the major cities across Northern America have decided to opt out of allowing for high speed rails to come to their cities. It is far too much of a risk for the city and their citizens, none the less the technology of these railroad’s is beyond impressive.
