My practice is forensic audiology. A considerable portion of my practice is involvement in issues of audibility of warning signals pertaining to railroad accidents. A significant portion of those cases involve instances in which pedestrians have been struck and killed by trains.

I can think of many other ways to convey the message of an article concerning vestibular disorders than the one tastelessly chosen by my national organization.
