It’s better to let Raj go than run to board a moving train — a survival lesson for every Mumbaikar to ever take a Mumbai Local. Let’s find out how railway safety messages are put across globally
No one can possibly deny that the current railway infrastructure in Mumbai is not at par to the expansion of the population and their needs. However, when Government Railway Police statistics show that over 1600 people died last year while crossing tracks, there is a huge gap that needs to be filled — by regular commuters in their everyday travels and by the authorities in creating awareness. Here we bring you some global campaigns that have put forth similar railway safety concerns beautifully as well as effectively.
