CROSSING SAFETY IMPROVES YEARLY
Safety at railroad-highway grade crossings has shown a steady improvement. More grade crossings are being protected with automatic devices and the number of accidents at crossing is declining. Additionally, there is optimism for continued improvement, due mainly to a greater public awareness that is manifesting itself in federal legislative action to provide more funds for grade crossing protective devices to be installed, not only at federal-aid highways, but at other highways as well. The recently passed Federal Aid Highway Act of 1973 includes specific moneys for installation of protective devices at railroad-highway grade crossings.
