Stand back!

By on

This is in no way, shape, or form the victim's fault. But I whenever I see people standing close to the edge of the platform, I see potential shoving victims. Yet every day, I see people dangling off the edge of the yellow warning strip.

It's a simple thing you could do to protect yourself from being intentionally or unintentionally shoved onto the track, or tripping or fainting onto the track. Accidents (and crimes) happen.
