How to stay safe on public transport – no win no fee in Dunfermline
Many people feel safer on public transport than they do on the road. This may be because public transport is generally larger, and full of more people, than a car. It may also be because a driver on public transport does this as their job, so feels less likely to have an accident. However, accidents can occur on public transport, and in many very different ways than crashes or other road accidents. Here are some ways in which you can keep yourself safe on public transport.
Watch out for wet floors
Because of the sheer volume of people going on and off of public transport, cold and wet weather can make the wider floor space a hazard, as these floors can become very slippery. There is rarely time for someone to come and clean up spills, so always keep your eyes on where you are walking, and move slowly, even on a busy service.
Stay away from the edge
On railway platforms, underground platforms, and even by bus stops, it is too easy to get knocked in the path of a vehicle if you stand close to the edge. There are lots of people around you jostling to get onto the vehicle, so try to stay out of the way.
Be aware at night
Public transport can get dangerous at night, so always be aware and alert when you have to travel in the dark. Travel with other people, or sit as close to the driver or other passengers as possible. It may be tempting to sit in an empty train carriage to enjoy the space, but this is far more dangerous than sitting with a loud group, who would put off potential attackers.
