This week is Rail Safety Week in Indiana. In commemoration, the state’s Transportation Department, the State Police, Operation Lifesaver, and various railroad companies are partnering to spread a message of safety at railroad crossings. Throughout the state, local law enforcement entities will be enforcing laws geared toward preventing people and automobiles from crossing railroad tracks at inappropriate times and venues. Ten people died last year from crossing collisions. PSAs will also be used to increase awareness.
