Rail Safety Week 2022

September 19, 2022

Rail Safety Week is September 19-26, 2022.

Did you know that every 3 hours in the U.S, a person or vehicle is hit by a train? As part of the goal of Vision Zero for Montana, MDT works with Operation Lifesaver to educate people on how to be safe around highway-rail crossings and railroad tracks. Throughout the week, we'll be posting important safety reminders, resources and opportunities for Montanans to engage in Rail Safety Week on MDT's social media channels. We encourage you to follow along, join in the conversation and do your part to always practice safe, legal behavior around railroad tracks and crossings. Together, we can #STOPTrackTragedies!
