Causes of Subway Accidents
Thousands of people move through the subway stations in New York each and every day. With massive amounts of passengers moving from station to station, it is essential that the appropriate precautions are taken to ensure the public's safety. Even the slightest departure from regular safety measures, such as a broken step, debris on steps or in walkways, or poorly maintained safety rails, can have catastrophic results.
Public authorities and municipalities are responsible for maintenance and safety within the subway and train stations. When the budget becomes an issue, the first thing that goes is safety and maintenance. It is an enormous undertaking that should not be ignored because of financial constraints.
