The problem with plastering signs everywhere like we do, it's that people quickly get so used to them that they ignore them. I see quite often that the public simply doesn't read warning or safety signs, no matter how prominent or frequent they are. I put a sign above a light switch at work once that said "do not touch - 4000 volts" or something with a skull on it. People used that light switch all day.
These signs are just part of the scenery here in the UK. And because of this, nobody ever puts a sign up to protect the public, they do it to protect themselves from liability.
At the same time, having trains that have slidey down windows that don't even interlock when the train is flying down the track at 90mph is pretty fucking stupid, no matter how much at fault the headless chap was for sticking his bonce out of the window in the first place, and I'd argue that's the real safety issue.
