Default Driver Doors Open

Their is one thing that is really ****ing me off.

That is tube drivers on the northern line having their cab driver side doors
open while in the TUNNEL.

If a diver wants to risk his life that is his business, but as a passenger
the last thing I want is for him to be seriously or fatally injured while we
a travelling at high speed.

I dont mind the other door open but I would just hate to think is that he or
she would fall out and blood would be all over the front window.

The deadman's handle covers this situation, I'd've thought. (Basically
it's a handle or button that must be kept pressed down or the brakes
come on; at least in the traditional design. Modern stock may have
a more cunning arrangment designed to catch other problems).

What does it matter to you? If he falls out the train will
stop. Anyway ,
aren't the seats more of a wrapround armchair type that
would make it rather
difficult for him to fall out unless he stood up first?

That depends on the stock besides which most of them open the door on the
opposite side of the cab from where they're sitting. Which makes falling out
a matter of determined dedication and deliberate bloody-mindedness.
