This may not be the most popular mode of transportation in the country but we still have to consider this as one of the major daily transportation. This is due to the fact that in Metro Manila, there are so many students, businessmen and ordinary people who are commuting from their homes to their schools, offices, etc. using the trains. The recent derailed MRT train with at least 30 passengers injured. This is a lesson to those who are operating trains around the world since there are lives on-board.
Trains are still common in many countries especially the terrestrial types. And since in this modern time, trains are faster than we think, it is advisable for us to know what to do when on board of it. We have to strategist our trip in order to know when and where to arrive. Other things that we need to consider when riding a train is looking closely at our luggage, talking to other travelers, finding a strategic seat and knowing the exit points for worst to worst cases. If these are considered, we will have a safer train ride.
Going back to the question “How safe it is to ride on trains?” well, it depends upon the train. Trains that have been operating for a long time should be checked very well if they are worthy to travel. This is in order to know if they should be shun or allowed to continue. Trains carry a huge number of passengers daily and mechanical problems should be avoided. A simple mechanical problem might lead to a devastating result.
For countries that are high tech, trains are not the same as the original ones. They can travel faster now unlike before. Well, it is good to ride on trains especially if you are going to a highland or faraway places through terrestrial travels.
