GRADE CROSSINGS A SAFETY PROBLEM ATTACKED BY OPERATION LIFESAVER

The article is the third in a series on railroad grade crossings and the recently intensified effort to reduce accidents and deaths through public education, improved signalization and better crossing construction. It discusses why the nation has so many railroad/highway-street grade crossings and operation lifesaver, which calls for the combined cooperation of the American Association of Railroads, the individual rail lines, the National Safety Council, the National Transportation Safety Board and federal, state and local highway departments and authorities, to focus national attention on the project and is becoming a positive force in the reduction of fatalities and accidents at grade crossings.
