Protective wall should be considered

I was shocked to hear of the death of Lou Terrell at the railroad crossing in Del Mar.  It is an extremely dangerous situation with dozens of commuter trains going through a pedestrian crossing at full speed.  It may be decades before the track is rerouted away from the beach.  I would suggest that friends of former Mayor Terrell consider a protective and decorative low-rise wall from Powerhouse Park to several blocks north along the beach.  It would be expensive, but what is another human life worth?
