Safety Measures

The recent spate of accidents involving crossings (see Two Accidents and video) has prompted the Town of Ashland to publish ‘Town of Ashland Announces Initiatives to Improve Safety at Rail Crossings’. It can be downloaded here.

The report examines incidents since the year 2007. It is interesting to note that (a) 78% of the incidents occurred at night, and (b) 67% involved the consumption of alcohol.
