How to choose a safe place in 7 types of transport

Безопасное место в транспорте

Transport is a combination of all types of communication lines, vehicles, technical devices and facilities along the routes of communication, ensuring the process of moving people and goods of various purposes from one place to another.

In most cases, sitting down in transport, we think about comfort during the trip, but you 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 at Shram.kiev.ua believe that everyone should know about this and 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 in the "head-on" accident is the least deformed.

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

Shuttle taxi

Safe place in transport

● Safe places: located backwards in the direction of travel, as under heavy braking there is less chance of hitting your head against the back of the chair.

● Dangerous places: at windows and doors, as in an accident they can cut, pin down with broken glass. It should be avoided, as in the car, the place near the driver.

Trolley bus

Safe place in transport

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

● Dangerous places: just like in taxis, you should not sit at the 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 cabin, located in the direction of travel, as they are farther from the rest of the oncoming traffic.

● Dangerous places: in the first two rows of seats, since foreign objects and debris often fly into the 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. The coupe is also better to choose the 5th or 6th, that is, closer to the middle, since in a collision the 1st and last cars either crush or go off the rail.

● Dangerous 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 water last.

● Dangerous places: the lower cabins, as in the case of holes, for example, they begin to fill up with all the cracks and get out of there is much more difficult.

Aircraft

Safe place in transport

In what part of the liner to choose the place, the experts still cannot determine because of the many differences.

But most experts say that the tail section 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 create panic and to remember about safety measures, as well as to 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.
