Freight trains do not travel on a predictable schedule; schedules for passenger trains can change.
Always expect a train from either direction at every highway-rail intersection.
If the gates are down, the road is closed and a train might be approaching. Stop and wait until
the gates go all of the way up and the red lights stop flashing before proceeding.
Most collisions occur within 25 miles of the driver's home.
At 55 mph, it may take a train up to a mile or more to stop completely.
Nearly 50% of all collisions occur at crossings equipped with automatic warning devices.
You are 20 times more likely to die in a collision with a train than in a
collision involving another motor vehicle.
