Czech Republic has dangerous railways

Statistics of Europe Union says that Czechs have most dangerous railways in EU. This fact was found in compare of dead people because of train. Suicide wasn’t counted.

Though there is almost no danger for passengers. CZ has one of best statistics in this case. Much bigger problem is a railway crossing. We are at second place of EU, after Poland.

It is caused by many factors, one of them is that crossing at local small tracks is not protected by gates or even warning lights. Still there is an order that every train has to blow every time when approaches to a tunnel, a bend, when leaves or enters station and of course when approaches to railway cross.

So it seems that biggest problem is an irresponsibility of drivers and pedestrians, who even avoid fall-gates or they ride too fast at train and they don’t slow down to ordered 30 km/h.
