RAILROAD GRADE CROSSING PASSIVE SIGNING STUDY -- PHASE 2

This article presents the results of a study to determine the effectiveness of new passive signing systems in warning drivers of the potential hazards at railroad grade crossings. Experiments were conducted over a 2-year period. With the new signs, drivers displayed more awareness (that is, increased percentage of head movements or looking for trains) at the crossings tested.
