The ILACP partnered with 286 state traffic safety agencies, state, county and local law enforcement agencies, railroads, railroad police agencies, as well as, private companies during the week of September 14th. through September 20th in an effort to bring an increased awareness to the issue of rail safety.

The week focused on enforcement efforts. Officers across the state issued 1191 warnings and 712 citations for rail related traffic violations.

The week also focused on educational efforts which included:
•140 Operation Lifesaver Presentations
•176 Press releases
•44,179 flyers
•Hundreds of television, newspaper, internet, social media and web page items.

By taking a statewide, all-industry approach the ILACP and our partners plan to build on existing programs and initiatives and bring greater public attention to these issues. In the end, we are hopeful that these partnerships and our efforts will reduce or eliminate injuries and or fatalities that occur at highway-rail crossings or on railroad property.
