The safest mode of transport: the elevator


When someone of my family is afraid to take a plane, I always repeat the same phrase: "it's more dangerous when you are on the way to the airport than traveling on the plane"

There are many statistics published every year about dangers of transportation. What is sure is that plane is always the safest way to travel.

The list of safest means of transportation is this:

1.Plane
2.Ship
3.Train
4.Bus
5.Van and truck
6.Car
7.Motorbike

But there is one thing statistics do not consider: vertical transport. The elevator is also contemplated as a mean of transportation. It is also used daily by millions of people. If you take into account the mortality data of elevator, it would become the safest mean of transport of the world .

Where would be the donkey here?
