Railroad Crossing Safety

Today marks the start of a three week Rail Grade Crossing Campaign reminding motorists:

Stop. Trains Can’t.

Between 2015 and 2019, there have been 3,460 collisions between rail transit trains and motor vehicles, resulting in 60 motor vehicle fatalities and 1,078 injuries. Ignoring rail grade lights and caution signs could cost you your life. Always observe all railroad signals and signs, and proceed when it is appropriate to do so. Never attempt to cross railroad tracks until you have enough space to successfully clear all tracks.
