Metrobuses are one of the most practical means of transportation for Istanbulites. Millions of passengers prefer metrobus every day. Handicaps are not absent. The biggest is "crowded". The metrobus system is also being discussed as a system that receives more demand than the capacity. Experts state that no matter how much improvement is made, it is difficult to look for "comfort" in the metrobus during rush hours unless alternative modes of transport are developed.
Recently, these long vehicles have started to attract attention with accidents. The snowfall that started in Istanbul yesterday evening caused the schools to be vacationed. Then came the news of the metrobus accident this morning.
Another metrobus coming from behind hit the metrobus waiting at the stop in Merter. 8 passengers were injured in the accident. Long queues occurred on the metrobus road. For a while, flights to Avcılar direction could not be made. Some passengers walked down the metrobus road.
Why are these vehicles going on a straight, straight path in succession? Do you have problems with the road due to overuse, driver carelessness, or excessive speed?
ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY HIGH VEHICLES
Last year, there were 15 major accidents involving the metrobus and involving injuries or property damage. 9 of the accidents occurred due to other vehicles entering the metrobus road. The reason for a few of the accidents is the out of control of the metrobus and driver errors. Another event that causes material damage is that the metrobus in motion suddenly catches fire and becomes completely unusable by burning.
