Police officers and firefighters emphasize train safety in Riverside
RIVERSIDE – Police personnel from Riverside will enforce a zero-tolerance campaign next week when it comes to train safety.
Village officials had both police officers and firefighters passing out information at railroad grade crossings Tuesday. Their goal was to raise awareness among pedestrians and motorists of what acts are illegal when it comes to crossing train tracks. Officers will be back out at grade crossings May 21 issuing tickets to anyone caught violating train safety laws.
Each year in Illinois, people are killed and many others injured in highway-rail grade crossing collisions or while trespassing on on railroad property, according to a news release issued by the Riverside Police Department. In Riverside, there are two major rail lines running through the community and five grade crossings that present a [potentially] dangerous situation between a train and a pedestrian or motorist.
