Not reassuring

According to the AP story about Mitt Romney's Big Dig press conference this morning, the built-in fire-detection system doesn't work properly, so "tunnel operators are spotting fires by relying on cell phone calls from motorists, or by noticing a reduction in their speed of travel."

Seriously, the first they'd know about a car engulfed in flames within a tunnel would be the traffic backing up? Yeah, I don't feel so great about that.
