RAILROAD-HIGHWAY GRADE CROSSING WARNING SYSTEMS

The selection of equipment components and the layout of a grade crossing warning installation should aim at attracting the attention of the motor vehicle operator and assist him in the exercise of his obligations. The object of this bulletin is to serve as a guide for those whose duties include promotion of safety at such crossings. The recommended practices contained in this bulletin are composite evaluations from sources in the railroad industry, Federal and state governments and manufacturers of grade crossing warning devices. These recommendations are intended to serve as guide lines only and are not to be taken or interpreted as absolute standards to be followed in all circumstances.
