Watch drunk people in train stations, ask Network Rail

31 July 2013

Network Rail have put out a video which shows how dangerous train stations can be when you've had too much to drink. In places, it is rather funny, which diminishes the message somewhat.

This new safety campaign wants to highlight that more than 1,600 people have been hurt in Network Rail stations in the past year, with many of them caused by dirty booze.

You can watch a man in a kilt fail to kick a pigeon and a hilarious fella have an awful time with an escalator.

British Transport Police Deputy Chief Constable Paul Crowther said: "Somewhat inevitably, drinking alcohol can impair people's judgment and co-ordination."

"Encouraging passengers to be more aware of their surroundings, particularly when they have had a drink, and to be alert to the inherent dangers that exist in stations will, we hope, reduce avoidable slips and falls across the network."

So don't die. And be funny while you do it.

    But if you're wasted, you're wasted. Nobody thinks about some advert when they're pissed and nobody decides to drink less because they're worried about falling in front of a train in 4 hours time

    Yes, don't use the train when you are drunk. Drive instead.
