Between 1865 and 1920, Industrialization had many Second, the development of new public transit systems, was important in shaping the design of our cities and the growth of our cities by enabling people to move further away from the inner city. Early on, large cities didn’t really have public transportation. Their main source of transportation were horse drawn wagons and walking. In conclusion, most people lived near on in the downtown area, where most of the working establishments were located. Because of this, it made big cites crowed and congested. With the breakthrough of the “el”, electric streetcars, and subways, around 1867, cities began expand more. Those who were fortunate enough to move out of the dirty cities and into better neighborhoods surrounded outside the city, did so. The new transit systems in most cities allowed people to escape the chaos of urban life and provided potential for growth of our cities.
Gerhard Dahl, president of Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation, wrote a letter to Hylan: In 1925, the New York Railways removed 46 miles of tracks to substitute buses. Span argues that the political battle between railways and buses had already been fought by the time General Motors got involved, influencing the type of
“The threat of blood on the tracks has become constant as the number of passengers surges to a level unseen since 1948”, Andrea Peyser writes in “Subways are New York’s Biggest Deathtrap”. The New York Post reported several subway incidents happened in the past weeks: a man in a wheelchair
“Railroad is ranked in the top 10 most dangerous jobs due to how many people die” from train accidents. One man was cut in half and died by two engines when the engine he was on collided with a parked train. Another man lost his arm when it go smashed between the couplings, a device used to connect two shafts together at their ends for the purpose of transmitting power between train cars, when the trains didn’t line up correctly. Someone ran the gates at route 3 and the train torn the car in half, killing the man inside. Over the past three years, two workers and three civilians have died from railroad related accidents. That’s not even including the people who are injured but do not

Something that I didn’t realize was that when you walk on tracks for train you are actually trespassing. Not only are you incredibly unsafe, you are actually breaking a law, and there could be serious consequences for doing that. Not only are the tracks dangerous, but not being smart on platform, and around the cars. Around the train cars is not a place to mess around. It is dangerous, and you should follow all of the rules that are posted. They aren’t posted to make our lives harder, they are posted to help us out, keep us safe, and make sure that no one gets hurt. I think that if we all just follow the rules that are posted, we use common sense, put our phones away, and are cautious, we can help each other out, and be safe in these situations. That is what I got out of the sources that I read, and listen to. In the video, “it's your choice,” there are many different stories about tragedies and other sad stories. I didn’t realize how serious these injuries,and accidents can be. I thought it was very interesting that when a train hits a car, it’s like a car running over a soda can. I also thought it was very sad all the stories that the people told about their loved

HA2022 BUSINESS LAW RESEARCH ASSIGNMENT TRIMESTER 2, 2012 DUE DATE: - MONDAY 24ST SEPTEMBER 2012 SUBMITTED BY: - ANUP SINGH RAIMAJHI (WMT2060) Question 1 A Sydney tramway passenger was injured in collision with another tram, which occurred after the driver collapsed at the controls. The plaintiff argued that the collision could have been avoided if the tramway authority had fitted the tram with system known as ‘dead man’s handle’, a system in use on Sydney’s trains. This would have stopped the tram and avoided the accident. The device had been rejected by the tramway authorities because it was felt that it could cause drivers to become tired, irritated and
Suicide can 't be stopped, even with preemptive measures in place. It is widely known that suicide is an issue amongst the human species, and the human species alone. Many have either seen or heard of suicide in some way, shape or form; though it is unfortunate, it does occur. Though many have heard of it, some may not know where how it is manifested. Suicide is brought on by depression. Depression, though is not the most common, can be seen in a good majority of people. Due to its unknown properties, depression manifests itself in a variety of ways; one of those just so happens to be suicide. It is hard to detect when someone is depressed enough to the point of suicide. So much so that, even some famous celebrities have committed suicide. For example, comedian, Robin Williams was one who unfortunately partook in the act. Suicide, despite how unfathomable it seems to some, does occur. It happens in all places from residential areas, to out in the open, but most surprising of all is that it even occurs in some of the most famous and recognized landmarks. All over the world, deaths have been recorded on some landmarks; one, in particular, is the Golden Gate Bridge. Some choose this bridge to do the unthinkable and jump off to end their lives. Due to the threat of deaths occurring on the bridge, some have proposed adding precautionary measures to prevent the deaths. The idea of putting up railing or fencing was a possibility mentioned to make the Golden Gate

Chronicle information of the building Even though the Tokyo Station was constructed in 1914, its actual plan is connected to the history of Japan’s rail in the 1880s (Ito n.p). It is therefore viewed by the Japanese as being significant in the advancement of rail technology and as a symbolic structure within Japan. By 1885, several railway tracks were already passing through Tokyo, thereby necessitating the need for a central terminal to be built in the region between Ueno and Shinbashi. The station which was to accommodate Tokyo’s entire network was simply referred to as the “central terminal” (Ito n.p).
France has the fastest tested time for a non-maglev, steel-wheeled train, at 574 km/h. It is a matter of history that H Neuvon, who was a member of the Japanese delegation (1960) visiting France about the 25kV overhead traction system and played an important role in the first Shinkansen, was closely associated with the Indian Railways in introducing the Rajdhani Express trains. While IR is still stuck at the 1964 determined 130 kmph restriction, the Japanese have already migrated to double the speed already.
