    Look and listen when you see advance warning signs indicating a rail-highway crossing. Drivers who pass vehicles when approaching a highway-rail crossing run the risk of a collision at the crossing. The vehicle being passed may obstruct a clear view of the tracks, or vehicle speed while passing may be too great to stop in time. The seven decision criteria applied are the hazard index, type of improvement selected, type of protection already on the rail corridor, the type of development near the rail-highway crossing, motorist expectancy with regards to train movements, the type of highway, and finally the public or local authority interest or comments on safety of the.

    The report focuses on public highway–rail grade crossings, because these crossings experienced 89 percent (33,) of all accidents and 90 percent (4,) of all fatalities from through , and funding provided under the Department?s safety .

Grade crossing crashes are much more severe than other highway crashes.
