It's Rail Safety Week

THIS IS RAIL SAFETY WEEK IN ILLINOIS.

 

LAST YEAR THERE WERE 101 VEHICLE CRASHES AT RAIL CROSSINGS, KILLING 24 PEOPLE. BRIAN VERCRUYSSE (ver-a-cruise) WITH THE ILLINOIS COMMERCE COMMISSION SAYS THEY ARE STRESSING THE DANGERS THESE AREAS PRESENT AND THE NEED TO REALLY PAY ATTENTION AS YOU APPROACH A CROSSING. THAT MEANS PUT THE PHONE DOWN, TAKE THE EAR BUDS OUT AND FOLLOW THE LAW. ADDITIONALLY...

 

 

VERCRUYSSE SAYS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING PEOPLE CAN DO IS PAY ATTENTION AND OBEY THE LAW WHEN NEARING A RAIL CROSSING.

 

 

THE I-C-C ALSO REMINDS NOT TO WALK ON TRAIN TRACKS AND TO ALWAYS EXPECT A TRAIN AT A CROSSING AS SCHEDULES OFTEN VARY.
