Train operators have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of their passengers. Unfortunately, due to mechanical failure or human error, a train may occasionally stop suddenly, endangering the people it carries.
Rapid deceleration can result in a variety of injuries, including whiplash, concussion, and soft tissue damage. Moreover, the momentum of the train before a rapid stop can cause it to derail, which can prove fatal for passengers as well as bystanders.
