Florida launches ‘Train Safety Awareness Week’

Posted on April 16, 2008

Florida will hold its third annual “Train Safety Awareness Week,” which will take place Sunday, Apr. 20 through Friday, Apr. 26, as proclaimed by Florida Governor Charlie Crist.


The week has been set aside to raise public awareness about the laws and hazards of being on, or near, railroad tracks, particularly at road crossings.  


Officers from more than 36 different law enforcement agencies throughout Florida will join staff members and volunteers from the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority/Tri-Rail, Amtrak, CSX Transportation, the Florida Department of Transportation, Operation Lifesaver and Veolia Transportation in distributing information about train safety. Officers will also issue citations to pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers observed breaking the law.
