Re: I take back everything I said about the London Underground

Posted by randyo on Sun Mar 4 20:44:01 2012, in response to Re: I take back everything I said about the London Underground, posted by italianstallion on Sun Mar 4 16:44:03 2012.

That's one of the reason the Underground drivers have a "superstition" about operating with the cab light illuminated. The theory is that if a person wishes to commit suicide and sees a train approaching with a darkened cab, then he/she will jump since it is perceived that the train is doing the actual killing. If, however the would be suicide sees a person in the cab, then he/she is less likely to want to do the deed since he/she would not want a live person to suffer the guilt of killing another. The drivers do claim that operating with the cab light on does reduce the chances of having a person jump in front of their trains.
