More and Increasingly Severe Violence on Trains

Violence on trains is increasing and becoming more violent. These are the findings in a confidential report by the Dutch Railways. The police often do not come when there are severe incidents. The trade union FNV Bondgenoten considers this unacceptable. On one line from Hoorn to Alkmaar serious aggression has increased by 280%. On the line from Schiphol Airport to Zaandam there has been an increase by 100%.
