Train Safety Awareness Week May 5-11, 2013
The Florida Department of Transportation, in conjunction with their train safety program Operation Lifesaver, uses this opportunity to educate the public on how to be safe around highway-rail grade crossings and railroad tracks. During this week, Florida Operation Lifesaver works with law enforcement agencies throughout the state to increase motorists’ awareness of highway-rail grade safety and to inform pedestrians of laws pertaining to trespassing on railroad property.
