National Rail Safety Week!

News

MISSOURI — September 21st through the 27th is National Rail Safety Week!

Each year in the show-me state alone, there is an average of 35 highway train tracks crashes and five deaths. Those figures don’t take into account the number of injuries and deaths by people trespassing on train tracks.

MoDOT and Operation Lifesaver are two organizations that are trying to lower those numbers.
