New Zealand Train Company Might Ban Passengers From Taking Photos Due To Risky Selfies

Selfies might be an annoyance for some people; getting in the way or dodging those irritating selfie sticks But now a train company in New Zealand is considering banning tourists from taking pictures because they’re putting their lives at risk!

KiwiRail group who runs the Coastal Pacific train has an over 200 mile route going from Christchurch to Picton.

The route takes you through some of the country’s beautiful landscapes and vistas and therein lies the problem!

Katie McMahon, The general manager of KiwiRail group told The Independent even though there are warnings and announcements on the trains…“We have seen passengers leaning out with selfie sticks, iPads and their bodies, often unaware of an approaching tunnel…which could cause a tragic incident for themselves, and others." The plaguing problem has resulted in the company reviewing their policies; during this time the viewing carriage on the train will be off limits.

McMahon went on to comment there have been proposals for a solution such as inclining barriers, narrow bars, and glass windows.

People risking anything and everything for the perfect photo has resulted in hundreds of deaths over the years.

A 2018 study published in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care found there have been over 250 selfie related deaths, Between October 2011 to November 2017.

Also, finding the average person’s age was close to 23 years-old.
