How to choose a safe place in 7 modes of transport

Безопасное место в транспорте

Transport is the aggregate of all types of communication routes, vehicles, technical devices and structures along the communication routes that provide the process of moving people and cargoes of various purposes from one place to another.

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

We in Shram.kiev.ua believe that everyone should know this and collect 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

● Secure seats: in the back seat behind the driver and in the center, as this part of the car is most deformed during the "forehead" accident.

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

Shuttle bus

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: they are located back in the direction of movement, because with a sudden braking less chance of hitting your head against the back of the chair.

● Dangerous places: at windows and doors, as in case of an accident they can be cut, crushed with broken glass. Avoid, as in a car, places next to the driver.

Trolleybus

Safe place in transport

● Secure seats: in the right row at the aisle (in the case of right-hand traffic), since the counter flow of traffic moves to the left, and therefore the chance to suffer less. Also, the places in the middle of the cabin, located with their backs in the direction of travel, are considered safe.

● Dangerous places: just like in taxis, do not sit at windows and doors, so as not to suffer from glass shards.

City bus

Safe place in transport

● Secure seats: the far right seats in the middle of the cabin are located in the direction of travel, as they are farther from the rest of the oncoming traffic.

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

A train

Safe place in transport

● Secure places: closer to the center of the composition. Coupe is also better to choose the 5th or 6th, that is, closer to the middle, as in the collision the 1st and the last cars either crumble or go off the rails.

● Dangerous places: places in the direction of movement, as when braking from them, there is a greater chance of falling.

Ship

Safe place in transport

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

● Dangerous places: the lower cabins, as in the case of a hole, for example, they begin to be flooded from all the cracks and get 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 because of a lot of disagreements.

But most experts say that the tail section is less dangerous than the first 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, and also observe the rules of movement and behavior in public transport. In this case, the probability of getting into an accident will be reduced to a minimum.
