I certainly have been on such train with an emergency stop. This is before the pandemic.I just read through what happened on Jan 31st, jesus christ that was really mean to @turbanplanner. I agree he can be misinformed on various issues, but that was too far. Can we like not discredit people by strawmanning motivations, or calling them an idiot for not immediately thinking/being too scared to press a yellow strip and instead seeking help from an employee (which is basic human instinct). Imma be honest, if I was in the same position, my first instinct would probably not involve pressing the yellow strip either (I've been riding the TTC regularly for 10 years, and not once have I ever been on a train that had to emergency stop). Let's not just dogpile people we don't like okay?
One time someone fainted in the same carriage as me and they needed to get the paramedics. Fortunately he was okay.
Then another time some pissed off hobo decided the train was moving too slow, press the strip and cuss out the guards. This was on a Saturday afternoon at Bay Station. No he didn’t get charge.
Stuff do happen and sometimes people will all agree we should press the strip. One person might be too scared but they will encourage each other to do so.
