Every year thousands of people are seriously injured or killed in train collisions and accidents. According to one government report, there is a train accident once every two hours. Train companies must design and construct crossings that are safe. Unfortunately, many crossings are unmarked, lack signage or cross-bucks, and lack flashing lights and gates. Thousands of train crossings across the country are improperly designed. Thousands of other crossings have the view obstructed by overgrown vegetation and other hazards.
Even when warning devices are present they often malfunction. Train conductors and engineers often fail to sound horn warnings before approaching crossings or fail to slow or stop the train when they spot motorists or pedestrians near the tracks.
