Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Doing a quick off-hand calculation, 30,000 drivers, 30 year careers, 1000 suicides/year would give oe hit per driver per career.

Here is an interesting study for those who can read German. It analysed the 5731 railway suicides from 1997 to 2002. Intersting factoids:

  • While East Germany has a higher suicide rate, for railway suicide, it's just the opposite
  • there is indeed an increase in railway suicides over time
  • 75% of the 16 chronic spots along the network were near psychiatric institutes

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
