Are measures taken to prevent accidents in the Istanbul Metro?

Visually impaired Mahmut Keçeci, whose right leg was broken by falling on the rails at Osmanbey Metro Station, said, 'There is no guidance for the visually impaired', Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Transportation Inc. filed a criminal complaint against the authorities on charges of 'wounding' and 'negligence of duty'. The prosecutor requested permission from the governorship to conduct an investigation as required by the law. Upon this situation, a report was prepared by assigning inspectors to investigate the incident. Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality News'> Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Inspectors stated in their report that Keçeci was' careless and imprudent 'and stated that there was no room for permission for an investigation. When the governorship made a decision in this direction, no investigation permission was issued against the authorities.


In the 18-page report prepared by the IMM Inspector Kaya Albayrak, Mahmut Keçeci, who is 1.5 percent visually impaired, was found to be defective. The following statements were included in the report prepared. “Although it was stated in the claim that Osmanbey Station does not have at least XNUMX meters of barriers apart from the places where the wagon doors coincide, this system, which is expressed as the Platform Separator Gate System, isKabataş This system is located at the Seyrantepe station, which is built for the safety of all passengers with the driverless system in the funicular line between the funicular line and also because of the reasons such as matches and concerts. Since the above mentioned criteria are not in question in other metro lines, this application has not been required. Since there is no shortage of operation due to the formation of the accident, there are precautions to prevent the accident, since the station marking has warning signs for pedestrians not to cross the yellow line at an appropriate distance before getting on the metro vehicles.

Mahmut Keçeci and his friends, who are 40 percent or more, who have a Disability Health Board Report and who have a travel card, who use the disabled card free of charge from the subway, are not warned by the security personnel about the use and assistance of the disabled elevator. The fact that the visually impaired citizens use this law enforcement, which indicates that the situation has been treated without precaution, and that the disabled people do not have the opportunity to perceive the metro vehicle waiting distance and the yellow line at the station, because the visually impaired Mahmut Keçeci does not use his cane properly and as a result of his uncontrolled movements. It was concluded that it should be cautious and that there is no need for any transaction facility about the authorities for these reasons. ”


Mahmut Keçeci, who worked as a switchboard officer in the Regional Directorate of Foundations, challenged the report and maintained his claim. He said that he had also applied to Keçeci District Administrative Court. Stating that the report was prepared by an inspector appointed by the Istanbul Municipality and his own employee, Keçeci said that the Governorship of Istanbul is based on this report. Keçeci said, “We have also appealed to the Regional Administrative Court. The report says that the municipality is not at fault, that there are no defects, and that the entire fault is due to my uncontrolled behavior. He talks about the rules I must follow in terms of pedestrian obligations. For example, one of these rules is that I have to wear a cuff on my arm. This is completely outdated, stigmatizing, sorting and exclusive. I do not know if there is such a regulation in the legislation, but I will file a criminal complaint against IMM Inspector Kaya Albayrak on this matter. ” Defending that he has no obligation to show that he is visually impaired, such as wearing a law enforcement, Keçeci said, “Let's not put people in fools. People can sense that I haven't seen it on the go. Besides, how the yellow lines will perceive the law enforcement or how the rails will perceive. ”


Evaluating other reasons in the report, Keçeci said, “The light and brightness of all warning systems are mentioned in the report, as if it was a visual impairment rather than a visual impairment. This is actually a humiliation. In other words, we all know that a person who does not see does not perceive visual elements ”. Keçeci said, “They say that there are few examples of the collapsible doors they use in Seyrantepe and Funicular stations in the world. The reasons for Seyrantepe are playing matches and concerts there. The reasons for the funicular are that the vehicle is driverless. However, these people are not aware that we live in a city of 18 million and that the transportation load is on the metro. All subways are actually busier than Seyrantepe. This is ridiculous if this practice is being done because a match will be played every 15 days or a concert will be held at certain times. Even if you tell the children, even the children will refuse it. ”

Stating that he is waiting for the result of the Regional Administrative Court, Keçeci said, “My application will be concluded in 1-1,5 months. If the same attitude continues during this time, if the Istanbul Governorship resists in its decision based on the investigator report, we will have nothing else to do in terms of domestic law. Only one option remains. Getting the path of the European Court of Human Rights. I want to try this way because I believe I'm right. ”
