MANY SIGNS POINT TO SAFER GRADE CROSSINGS

For the fifth straight year, deaths from railway-highway grade crossing accidents declined in 1971. The 1970-71 drop in fatalities was 5.3%. The more optimistic outlook for safer grade crossings is due to several factors, among them more interest and funding for protection equipment by government agencies, improved and expanded driver education programs, improved signs and markings at crossings, and improved devices and systems of crossing protection equipment. Grade crossings statistics for the years 1951-71, and a Buyer's Guide for Crossing Protection are included.
