The project summarized in this report is part of a research program that aims to reduce grade crossing and railway trespassing incidents by 50% by 2006. Researchers examined data on the frequency and severity of collision and developed a mathematical model for identifying black spots. Black spots are grade crossings where additional safety countermeasures are warranted.
