Travelling towards Little India station, the moving train emergency braked. A lot of passengers fell down including me. When I said fell down, I mean FLAT on the ground. Imagine the impact of the e-brakes.
No aftermath announcements, no explanations, no offer to first aid to those who fell. And Downtown line trains have CCTV, so the officers know what's happening. Feedback to Bugis station passenger office, a Singaporean Chinese male officer. He said he knows the e-brake was applied due to the train in front was slowing down. He claimed the system did not allow announcements to be made. He brushed me off by saying the emergency brakes have to be applied, better than having a collusion. If the train in front is already slowing down, why shouldn't our train slow down sooner but have to apply e-brakes? Are we waiting for a disaster to happen before our concerns should be addressed?
