"human obstacles"?[edit]

What exactly does this mean?

   "ICE 3 high speed trains use electrochromatic glass panels between the passenger compartment and the driver's cabin. The standard mode is clear, and can be switched by the driver to frosted/translucent, mainly to conceal "unwanted sights" from passengers' view, for example in the case of (human) obstacles."

The only ways I can really interpret this is that the glass is A.) to conceal the fact that there are protesters on the track blocking the train, or more likely B.) to keep passengers from seeing the man lying on the track waiting to commit (very messy) suicide via 200mph train. It would nice if this was phrased more clearly. Personally, I think it more likely the glass is just to give the driver some privacy to drink a little booze or take a nap ;) .45Colt 17:10, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
