    Personal safety on public transport and how to make personal injury claims after an accident

    Travelling on public transport can be easier than driving yourself around. For a start, it doesn’t matter if you drink before riding public transport, or if you are very tired when you are on the move. You should be able to get to your destination without any hassle as your driver will know their route exactly, making it easier to get around in areas you don’t know very well. However, because you are travelling with other people that you don’t know, there is a personal safety issue on public transport that you should be aware of and do what you can to keep yourself safe.

    • Know the routes and times. You are likely to be much safer if you know the routes and times of public transport, so that you are never sat at a bus stop or on a train platform for hours on your own at night.
    • Stick to well lit areas. If you must wait for public transport at night then choose a stop which is well lit and busy, and preferably outside a shop or bar which is open and has security close by.
    • Be prepared to shout. If you are attacked or someone is intimidating or threatening you, try to shout out to other passengers to get their attention and help. Studies have shown that if you make eye contact with individuals they are more likely to help than if you shout to the crowd at large.
    • Hide your valuables. Many people distract themselves on public transport by playing with a phone or listening to an MP3 player. This just makes you a target for thieves, so keep everything hidden away and stay alert.
    • Trust your instincts. When you get onto a bus or train and look at your fellow passengers, there may be one person who stands out as someone you don’t want to sit next to. Trust your instincts and steer clear of this person.
