WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA)  - The safety commission that oversees Metro is threatening to re-open an investigation of the transit agency's response to complaints about its emergency exits.

Metro's own inspectors have been complaining for years about its slow response to locked doors, bad exit signs, angry bees and overgrown bushes around the emergency exits.

Metro promised the Tri State Oversight Commission that it would speed such complaints up the chain of command after investigations in 2007 and 2010.

But after reviewing thousands of reports from inspectors, the Washington Examiner concluded that some of the problems continue.

Matt Bassett of the Oversight Commission says procedures Metro promised may never have been finalized.
