Mainline A: Put The Trains Down The Middle

I attend a lot of public meetings because of my job. And more and more I find it's hard to get people to attend. They all have other stuff to do; running the kids to school functions, grocery shopping, working late, etc. That makes it hard to get public comment on potential future transportation projects, and its SO important to gauge the public's opinion when you're spending that kind of money.

Detroit may have found a way to get people to comment on a light rail line, and it uses Lego people. I wish my budget was big enough to buy Legos AND a video camera.
