Every three hours, a person or vehicle in the United States is hit by a train due to unsafe behavior such as trespassing or ignoring warning signals. Helping keep our communities safe is incredibly important. CSX, along with Operation Lifesaver, Inc. and other partner organizations, led safety awareness activities during the 2020 Rail Safety Week campaign held September 21-27.
Rail Safety Week is a collaborative awareness campaign drawing participants from Class I railroads, the U.S. Department of Transportation, first responders and more. CSX's annual network-wide outreach may include activities such as trespassing and traffic enforcement blitzes, school and community presentations and truck driver outreach. To be mindful of COVID-19 risks, the Rail Safety Week public safety campaign will be conducted virtually this year.
