Death Wish.

Hi,

.

Recently I have been reading reports about the way that people are thoughtlessly risking their lives on rail crossings, as if trains are harmless things.

.

It is hard to understand how people can forget the terrible danger that they put themselves in the way of.
Not to mention the lasting problems that the train drivers, and the onlookers, could be left with after such an incident.

.

Bad enough when a train crash happens, along with all of the damage to passengers etc, without it being caused by stupidity!

.

I think that it is about time people took some responsibility for the things that they do, because they, or their families, will have to live with the tragic results.

What follows is a very horrifying video, which shows a 26 year old drunken woman in Boston Subway in the USA.
She was apparently attempting to stub out a cigarette and then managed to actually fall down onto the tracks in front of shocked and disbelieving commuters.

This man is being stupid on a level crossing in Essex.
Talk about luck, a fraction of a second’s difference and he would have been dead!

.
It is hard to believe that a 10,000 ton train can be treated as an inconvenience!
.

.
This next is from UTube once more, and shows various incidents.
There have been many adverts to try and prevent people taking risks on the more than 7,500 crossings in the UK.
Each is protected by barriers being lowered a few moments before a train is due to pass along the supposedly clear 30+ foot of barred track.
Unfortunately not everyone has respect for the inherent dangers.


.
Believe it or not, there is a new craze now, especially in Russia, which is called train surfing.
This is the description given to the dangerous practice of catching rides upon the back or sides of subway trains.

My goodness….how naughty people are!

Take care travelling.
