State and City Remind Residents About Rail Safety

Did you know that nationwide, about every three hours, either a person or vehicle is struck by a train?

The Connecticut Department of transportation, which administers the Operation Lifesaver program here in Connecticut, reminds you that no one should walk on rails and whether you are in a vehicle or on foot, please obey the signals at railroad crossings. And should you come to a crossing, where there are no signals, stop, look and listen before crossing.

International Trespass Awareness Day (TRESPAD) is June 5th, 2024, and International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) is June 6th, 2024.
