Amtrak Police and Operation Lifesaver Team Up for Largest U.S. Rail Safety Enforcement Action

Published on : Thursday, September 19, 2019

Amtrak Police and Operation Lifesaver Inc. (OLI), on Tues. Sept. 24, will host “Operation Clear Track,” the single largest railroad safety detail to be mobilized across the U.S. as part of National Rail Safety Week that runs Sept. 22-28.

 

During “Operation Clear Track,” Police and Sheriff’s officials from more than 600 departments will enforce state grade crossing and trespassing laws across 48 states. During the three-hour safety detail, law enforcement officers will issue citations and warnings to drivers and trespassers who fail to comply with state laws. The safety initiative will take place at more than 1,500 railroad grade crossings where actual incidents or near misses have occurred involving motorists or trespassers in the past.

 

Law enforcement officials will also disseminate pocket safety cards to the public offering tips on how to stay safe around trains. “Operation Clear Track,” now in its third year, is designed to help educate the public about the dangers and consequences of illegally crossing railroad tracks and trespassing on railroad property. The overall goal of Rail Safety Week is to reduce injuries and fatalities around railroad tracks through increased public awareness and enforcement.
