NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD. SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS-R-78-42
In a study of data from 269 accident investigations involving 280 fatalities over a 20-month period, NTSB has developed a profile of the average pedestrian killed by a train. Characteristics of the accident site, time of day and day of week, and of the victims, including use of alcohol, were determined. The recommendation to Federal Railroad Administration was for development of criteria for railroad fencing in built-up areas.
