CSX joins Operation Lifesaver, Inc., Operation Lifesaver Canada and the Mexican Association of Railroads to help stop tragedies around railroad tracks and trains by observing Rail Safety Week across North America, September 18-24. This annual weeklong effort concentrates public attention on the need for rail safety education and saves lives by educating and empowering the public to make safe decisions around tracks and trains.
The vast majority of railroad fatalities and injuries — approximately 95 percent as reported by the Federal Railroad Administration — are due to crossing collisions and incidents involving pedestrians trespassing on tracks. These incidents are preventable and public awareness plays a key role in fostering community rail safety.
