I recall since Driver Education in High School that accidents involving a train at Railroad Crossings have been a problem since roads and highways have crossed railroad tracks. So when I came across this news snippet from ‘World Highways‘ with a heading of “A 9.1% drop in highway-rail crossing incidents for the first half of 2005 on US railways is identified by a study. ”
I read this and was relieved to an extent. However, there seems to be no cause for the improvement which would be the most interesting and useful information to find out. This way we could apply those techniques and strategies in a more impactful way, to reduce further these unnecessary accidents like those shown in ‘Red Asphalt‘, a movie shown in some Drivers schools and training programs..
