DENVER (CBS4)– If you live near the A Line or G Line, RTD wants to talk about quiet zones. Many people who live in those areas hear the horns, despite the designation.

    RTD has lied about train noise consisently. Westminster station was approved because residents were told there wouldn’t be any noise from horns, but every train blows it’s horn twice when leaving. BN&SF are required to blow there horns 4 times at every crossing except at quiet zones, then it becomes the discretion of the engineer for safety. The frequency of the RTD trains especially during peak times makes it miserable living anywhere in the proximity of the crossings. I happen to live in an area of Westminster that has 4 crossings in less than a mile, so we hear the horns 16 times for every train.
