Saved By The Bed

The idea of a safety bed nestled within the railway track system is more than necessary for countries like India, where track-deaths are plenty. U-Roadbed is a U-Shaped roadbed created in the sleepers of the track. This cavity safely nestles the unfortunate person who slips onto the tracks of an upcoming train. I like the idea because any chance offered at survival and saving life is a good one. I only hope it’s a doable idea.

    being an indian i can assure you it’ll be filled with shit & piss in no time
    … malaria & dengue factory if you will 😛

    This idea would provoke people to jump in there and made a sport out of it.

    furthermore it will be filled with rubish very fast

  • Azza says:

    Why dont they just start doing what they are rolling out on the london underground and had a secondary line of doors and a glass wall? then you cant even get to the tracks…

  • T says:

    Increases use of materials, which could be invested in improving the initial issue of the train transport that leads to people falling off.

  • Yury says:

    Here in Minsk, Moscow Kiev (and so on) we have such type of rails along the metro station.

  • sam says:

    There are already such ‘suicide pits’ along the platform lengths, the lines in the tunnels or outside don’t have such pits.

    The purpose of the pit isn’t I believe for people to shelter in, but to trap rubbish, to prevent it shorting out the power rails.

  • sam says:

    gah.. on the london underground..

  • stephen russell says:

    Must for US subways esp NY, Boston, etc aside light RR lines.
    For all stations & stops alone.

  • Dave says:

    This would be un ecomonical to use on all line, but is reasonably feasible for stations. The train line would need to make sure it’s clear, however it means deeper excavations during the construction phase and a more complex build, to ensure long term stability. It’s unlikely that the corporations would care enough to do this, unless a death is more expensive IMO.

    This is a terrible idea. Has the designer been to India? That hole would fill up with trash by the end of the week!

    number one – thanx

  • My spouse and I stumbled over here different web page and thought
    I might as well check things out. I like what I see
    so i am just following you. Look forward to checking out your web page for a second time.

  • AL says:

    the problem is the high voltage: people who fall is’t able to get up because they touch rail, faint and ‘fridge’, poor them and those who try to help: they should do glass barriers indeed

  • Panta says:

    Already like this in Paris but yeah, we also have the glasses walls with a second door so none can go on the rails.

    And yeah its very dirty in here…

  • Do not accept the first offer unless youu truly feel it is fair.

    , if he doesn’t pay his court reporter bills, you do not want
    him as your attorney) (more on this later) Someone wwho is all
    about himself or herself (braggarts really have no place
    in personal injury) Someone who wanhts a lump-sum, up-front payment freom you and then wants to chaarge against that lump sum
    until it is gone (when he will then ask for yet another lump-sum payment).
    The following link will show you that Attorney
    Danner has hhad at least TWO petitiins filed against hiim for discipline.
