Railroad Crossing Safety Campaign
"FYI - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Railroad Administration have launched a new railroad crossing safety ad campaign. This ad is the latest in a two-year, focused effort to reverse the uptick in railroad crossing fatalities.
Its message is simple: Stop. Trains can’t.
The safety ad is running in the following states: California, Illinois, Texas, Louisiana, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Mississippi, New Jersey, Arkansas and Arizona. These states have the nation’s 15 most dangerous crossings, and they’re where 75 percent of the crossing accidents occurred in 2015.
The video clips, graphics, and other materials can be used in newsletters, message boards, or as a Safety Minute topic at your next meeting."
