An important issue of our society is the safety and comfort of our means of travelling. Unlike air travel, which is regulated internationally, rail travel is mainly controlled nationally, and therefore its degree of safety is greater.
For example in the USA and the UK the death average is of about ten passengers per year. It is well known that airplanes are more comfortable than trains and the time of a trip is also shorter, but the risk of accidents is very high. We all watch the TV news and each day something bad happens to an airplane in the USA, UK, France or even Romania. Once the airplane is in the air it is very difficult to have full control over it and, thus many undesirable things can occur. And here it's the case of the airplanes which are detonated by
groups of terorists, who put the lives of the passengers in danger, as it happened in the attacks in the USA, when American and forein airplanes were made to hit major institutions of the state and as a consequence, lots of people were killed.
On the other hand, accidents do occur on rails, mainly because of human errors or controlling and responding signals. Recent improvements in the computerised equipment made possible for the numeber of rail accidents to diminish.
In what concerns the financial aspect, everybody knows how expensive airplane tickets are and if you want to travel by airplane you have to save some money in advance. This happens mainly in our country, where the difference between prices is quite significant, but in other European states and in the USA , the tickets have similar prices.
To conclude, each means of transport has its advantages and disadvantages and when you have to take a trip you should always think first at your comfort and safety and decide what suits you the most.
