In public perception, public transit is supposed to almost entirely safe. Why else would buses be the only vehicles left on the road that don’t come equipped with safety belts?
In reality, public transportation entities such as DART continue to present as many dangers as other forms of transportation.For instance:
- DART can fail to properly screen driver applications, leading to the hiring of drivers with unsafe driving records and even a DUI record
- DART can fail to safely maintain its vehicles
- DART drivers may drive in a negligent fashion, leading to accidents injuries
- DART drivers may arrive to work intoxicated or under the influence of a legal or illegal drug
Users of public transportation also face the possibility of negligent driving on the part of car and truck drivers. In August of 2012 a DART bus collided with a minivan causing 17 injuries.
