The city of Waterville, town of Fairfield and the state of Maine should be ashamed of themselves for allowing Pan Am Railroad crossings to fall in such disarray.

Recently I hit the dangerous crossing on U.S. Route 201 in Hinckley with my car. Several holes appear to be at least eight to 10 inches wide and eight inches deep. If I had been riding on my motorcycle and hit one of those holes, it could have been disastrous.

What has to happen before repairs are made? Does someone have to die? It seems Pan Am Railway has the power to ignore people’s safety. I bet if a train derailed, something would change.
