Commuter Trains

Why not put an energy-absorbing, collapsable, impact rail car in front of the first passenger rail car of every commuter train? It would absorb the initial impact and damage from any collision with anything in the path of the train, and reduce or prevent any pieces from going into the passenger cars. It would the slow the impact of the passenger cars into the front of the train, reducing the forces on the passengers.
