How to choose a safe place in 7 modes of transport

Безопасное место в транспорте

Transport is a combination of all types of communication lines, vehicles, technical devices and structures on the lines of communication, providing the process of moving people and goods of various purposes from one place to another.

In most cases, getting into transport, we think about comfort during the trip, but you should never forget about safety, because in every type of transport there are places where the probability of suffering in the event of an accident is much less than in others.

We at Shram.kiev.ua believe that everyone should know about this and have collected for you the safest places in different types of vehicles , which were determined on the basis of various scientific studies and rigorous statistics.

Car

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: in the back seat behind the driver and in the center, since this part of the car is the least subject to deformation in a head-on accident.

● Dangerous places: next to the driver, because in a collision he will reflexively try to dodge, and then the person sitting next to him will be in danger.

Route taxi

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: located with your back in the direction of travel, as with sudden braking there is less chance to hit your head on the back of the chair.

● Hazardous places: near windows and doors, as in an accident they can be cut, crushed by broken glass. Avoid places near the driver, as in a car.

Trolley bus

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: in the right lane of the aisle (in the case of right-hand traffic), since the oncoming traffic flows to the left, and therefore there are less chances to suffer. Also safe are places in the middle of the cabin, located with your back in the direction of travel.

● Dangerous places: just like in fixed-route taxis, you should not sit at windows and doors so as not to suffer from glass fragments.

City bus

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: the rightmost places in the middle of the passenger compartment, located in the direction of travel, as they are farthest from the oncoming vehicles.

● Dangerous places: on the first two rows of seats, as foreign objects and fragments often fly into a huge windshield. The same applies to places near windows and doors. The rear row of seats is dangerous in the event of a rear impact.

A train

Safe place in transport

● Safe locations: closer to the center of the train. Coupe is also better to choose the 5th or 6th, that is, closer to the middle, because in a collision the first and last cars either crumple or go off the rails.

● Hazardous places: places in the direction of travel, as with sudden braking, they are more likely to fall.

Ship

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: the deck and cabins located closer to it, since the upper part of the ship goes under the water of the latter.

● Dangerous places: lower cabins, as in the case of a hole, for example, it starts to fill from all the cracks and getting out of there is much more difficult.

Aircraft

Safe place in transport

In which part of the liner to choose a place, experts still can not determine due to many disagreements.

But most experts argue that the tail is less dangerous than the front rows of the front of the aircraft.

But the most important thing is not to fall into paranoia or panic and remember the safety precautions, as well as follow the rules of movement and behavior in public transport. In this case, the probability of an accident will be reduced to a minimum.
