Stockholm's Children Afraid of the Metro

One fourth of children and young people in the Stockholm area feel unsafe while riding public transportation at night, a study by Save the Children reveals. Although only a very small percentage of the children polled had actually experienced violence in collective traffic, thirteen percent had been threatened during the last six months.

News agency TT reports that Margareta Olofsson, chairman of Save the Children Sweden, suggests that Stockholm’s public transportation company place more employees as “hosts” in the underground and on buses to give children a sense of security.

Beyond public transportation, the study found that a whole 58 percent of girls and 44 percent of boys felt stressed about failures in school.

The report was based on a survey Save the Children administered to 1,448 Stockholm schoolchildren in their early teens.
