Mobile phones bring safety hazards to gas stations

The number of small cars in Shenzhen is growing rapidly at a rate of 200 vehicles per day. How much do new drivers know about the safety regulations of gas stations? Yesterday, the reporter randomly interviewed several gas stations in the city and found that although the safety warning signs in the gas stations were very eye-catching, many drivers turned a deaf ear to the safety regulations such as banning mobile phones and turning off vehicles when refueling.

Most drivers have used their mobile phones at gas stations. How many people have complied with the safety rule of “turn off the vehicle when refueling”? The reporter interviewed several gas stations in the city and learned that 80% of novices often need to remind the fueler to stop the fuel when refueling. Old drivers generally do not need to remind the fuel to stop, but some old drivers do not want to stop the fuel because of trouble.

At the Sinopec gas station on Hongli Road, Ms. Huang from Meilin Village told reporters about her dangerous experience. Once when she refueled, she got out of the car without stalling, and the fueler reminded her to refuel after stalling the car. When she was refueling, her cell phone rang, and the fueler asked her to stand farther away to answer the phone. At that time, she felt a little unhappy in her heart, thinking that the fueler was very unkind. When she was standing far away on the phone, she suddenly heard a strange noise from the spray gun being refueling, and saw a sudden electric spark flashing from the front of the car. Although the spray gun automatically stopped refueling later, Ms. Huang was shocked. She told reporters that if it weren’t for the reminder of the fueler, it might have caused a catastrophe.

At a gas station near Liantang in Luohu District, 15 vehicles came to refuel within 20 minutes. Among them, 9 drivers were talking and laughing on their mobile phones while refueling. When the fueler was refueling a car, the driver’s mobile phone rang, and the driver picked up to answer the call. Although the fueler saw this scene, he did not remind the driver. On a pillar next to him, there was a post “No mobile phone use”. The striking goal.

During the reporter’s interview, two-thirds of drivers said they had used their mobile phones at gas stations, and many drivers even said they didn’t know this rule at all. A Mr. Zhu said: “I have never heard that calling on a mobile phone in a gas station will cause an explosion.” Many drivers think this is a big or small matter, and there is no need to make a fuss. Illegal operations can easily lead to accidents. It is common knowledge that fireworks are strictly prohibited at gas stations, but it is not clear to so many people that dialing or receiving mobile phones at oil depots or gas stations or refueling without turning off the flame may cause an oil and gas explosion. As more and more people use their mobile phones at gas stations and do not turn off the gas to refuel, relevant people warn that such illegal operations may become the fuse of an oil and gas explosion, and its danger is tantamount to playing with fire.

A person from the petrochemical company said that the density of oil and gas around the vehicle will increase sharply when refueling. At this time, the electronic friction generated by the mobile phone in the transmitting or receiving state may ignite the gasoline and cause an explosion. In fact, the manual of general mobile phone products will indicate: Do not use the mobile phone at the gas station! At the same time, the reporter learned that only last year, gas stations in Yueyang, Zhengzhou, Changsha, Lanzhou and other places had exploded due to the use of mobile phones, causing serious incidents of casualties.
