Sheriff’s Says Don’t Be Caught Dead Sitting on the Tracks


Monday, September 15, 2014
DuPage County Sheriff John Zaruba will be participating in Illinois Rail Safety Week from September 14th to September 20th in order to promote vehicle and pedestrian safety around railroad tracks and trains. 
In Illinois during 2013, there were 126 crossing collisions involving motor vehicles, which resulted in 40 injuries and 21 fatalities.  In addition, there were 52 trespasser incidents that resulted in 27 injuries and 25 fatalities when people trespassed on to railroad property.  During 2013, Illinois ranked 3rd in the nation in both vehicle collision fatalities and trespasser fatalities. 
  Enforcement details are planned throughout the week at various railroad grade crossings and commuter stations within the County of DuPage to cite both drivers and pedestrians who disobey the laws associated with railroad grade crossings and railroad property.  In addition, deputies will be distributing literature to educate the public on rail crossing safety.
