Public transport accidents

- Collisions with a car
- The train leaving its rails (derailment)
- Collisions with another train (signalling failures)
- Collisions with another object (person/animal/trees)
Train operators have a duty to protect their passengers by making sure that the above causes are not likely to happen. They should do this by having appropriate repair, maintenance and inspection programmes and by adequate training and supervision of staff.
