A Blue Line Train arrives at 103rd St/Kenneth Hahn Station, not far from where 57 year old Solanda Rodriguez was struck and killed by the Blue Line.

Earlier last month you heard Off-Ramp's Kevin Ferguson report on the Blue Line's embattled safety record: the line has been tied to 103 deaths so far. While the line has gone to great lengths to reduce fatalities along the line, pedestrian deaths have yet to decline. But what is it like to walk along one of the busiest (and deadliest) light rail lines in the country?

Kevin talked with Fred Camino, who blogs for The Source, Metro's official blog, about safety issues along the train.
