On 18 December 2017 The Seattle Times reported:
Well before Monday's Amtrak derailment, a Pierce County mayor had raised safety concerns and recently predicted that the new higher-speed rail spur would lead to fatal accidents. Lakewood Mayor Don Anderson said his city had fought against the new rail line, which moved fast passenger trains onto what had been a less-used freight line. The city of Lakewood sued the Washington State Department of Transportation in 2013 seeking to halt the project, arguing it had not undergone sufficient environmental review. The city lost its case in part because the law preempts cities and towns from regulating rail lines.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern government systems.

Anderson said a brand-new high-speed rail project would not have allowed so many at-grade crossings in a suburban setting -- they'd instead have been moved to tunnels or overpasses -- but that the Amtrak spur was grandfathered out of some of those requirements because it runs along an existing line.
