Whatever may be the reason, the fact is that there is a good reduction in the number of accidents taken place and for that let us congratulate all the concerned railway staff, officers and the big bosses for their efforts for this. Let us hope and wish in the coming days the number of accidents will reduce further and the passengers will commute without any safety problems.
Statistics was be used for or against a particular parameter by just using the figures we want from the study and not seeing the entire picture.
In such cases, the findings are often multifactorial and difficult to isolate a single factor as the cause. Common sense would say that all the factors that are related to accidents would have received the attention of the Railway staff to result in the lower number of accidents. It would be the maintenance crew, the train drivers, the rail traffic control wardens, the track and signal men all put together.
Luck and fate deal hands in by surprise in such events and would be in the back of mind and not on paper.
