Delinquency and Vandalism in Public Transport

Report of the Seventy-Seventh Round Table on Transport Economics Held in Paris on 8-9 October 1987

European Conference of Ministers of Transport

Acts of vandalism or violence and the defacing of facilities are increasing in public transport systems. This report provides an analysis of the social and psychological causes which is a prerequisite to formulate corrective measures. A comparison of what a number of systems have experienced focuses attention on the scale of the problems involved and different ways of resolving them. The recommendations that can be made differentiate between the responsibilities of the operators, national governments and the various local authorities.
