Education and outreach are critical to the railroad crossing safety effort. In order to educate the general public concerning safety at railroad crossings, FRA created the "I am a Pedestrian/Motorist" webpage. This new page includes safety tips for when you encounter a railroad crossing. We also have a partnership with Operation Lifesaver whose mission is to raise national awareness of railroad crossing issues. See below for more information regarding these efforts and remember: ALWAYS EXPECT A TRAIN!
