By Victoria Schlesinger

The much maligned San Francisco Muni is under attack not by grousing riders but the California Public Utilities Commission, which accused the rail system of repeatedly violating safety regulations. Inspectors said Muni was endangering the public, citing problems with the track, train control system and the agency’s slow reaction to the issues. [San Francisco Chronicle]
