TRANSPORTATION

transportation

 

 

 

You want to travel but don’t know how to get to your destination. Which kind of transportation do you think is fast and safe? Traveling on the ground, water or air, which one is better to use? Here are some comparisons among the different systems.

 

Driving cars:

This type of transportation by far is the most dangerous one. Drivers have a 1 in 114 chance of dying in a motor vehicle crash, and a 1 in 654 chance of dying as a car occupant. If you check the statistics of the dying people on the roads because of the accidents, you will see how high it is.

 

Railways:

So far comparing the cars and highways with railways, it can be said that railways are much safer and more convenient.

 

Boats and ship:

Again this type of transportation is also risky but it is much safer from driving on the highways.

 

Airplanes:

Since you only have a 1 in 9,821 chance of dying from an air and space transport incident, flying is actually one of the safest forms of transportation. Although many people are afraid of flying and even being in a plane that it is true that it is the safest way to travel.

If you have a fear of flying, you can combat that fear by equipping yourself with knowledge (like how relatively safe it is) and with a variety of techniques ahead of your next flight. Choose a seat at the front of a plane for a less bumpy ride, or face that fear head-on with a flying lesson.

British Airways, for example, offers classes that aim to reduce anxiety by teaching you how planes stay up in the air. Another option is to download the SkyGuru app to know exactly what's happening (and what to expect) on your flight in real time. By learning how safe it is to actually fly, you can spend your next flight thinking less about the plane and more about the trip.
