STIB handed out hot-dogs to metro passengers within new safety campaign


Metro passengers in Brussels have been handed out free hot-dogs from public transport operator STIB within a new safety campaign about the dangers of blocking metro doors.

Metro doors were equipped with series of posters warning commuters “not to end up a sausage” by squeezing on to a train while the doors are closing
“The doors apply a very strong pressure when they close,” a STIB spokesperson said. “Passengers could easily be injured if they get stuck or dragged along when the train leaves the station.”
The public transport operator says door-jammers cause delays which can have a knock-on effect during rush hours, when the gap between trains is as little as two minutes.
