When train accidents do happen, they can be dangerous since a railcar can destroy anything in its path likely causing serious or fatal injuries to passengers and to people in the near vicinity of the train. Most trains do not have seat belts, nor do they require passengers to wear a seatbelt. Trains are commonly used as the main transportation for people in big cities. Why own a car when you can take the subway? Therefore, hundreds of people cram into a train for their daily commutes—Looking like a bunch of sardines. When a train derails, the aftermath usually ends in utter disarray.
