Train Accident Due to Excrement on the Tracks
In Maastricht a train slipped due to residues of soap on the tracks. Five people were wounded. Contrary to other train companies the Dutch railways allow the excrement to empty out onto the tracks when the toilets are cleaned. The combination of the excrement and the soapy water fall onto the tracks, making them very slippery. Similar accidents occurred in 2006 and 2007 with people wounded.
