Public transportation is a trusted resource in our daily lives. We trust the drivers to be certified, attentive, and skilled at what they do. We trust the vehicles and equipment to function properly and be used as intended. And we trust the safety of all to be the central focus of every public transportation vehicle in operation. When this is not the case, an accident or problem is usually not far behind.
Since so many New Jersey residents utilize public transportation, it’s very easy for an accident to occur when passengers or transportation workers do not follow or obey directions.
