  • Number of railway accidents decreases
    three vehicle collisions happened at level crossings equipped with traffic lights This indicates clearly that these accidents were caused by the negligence of drivers In recent years the main reason for pedestrian accidents has been the inappropriate behaviour of people they cross railways in unauthorised places The situation remained the same also in the first half of 2013 when pedestrians were hit in places where they were trespassing In order to improve the situation in recent periods the efforts have been focused on restricting the areas where people usually trespass and on checking the existing walkways In addition extensive efforts are made for making the new passenger trains visible and audible as the road users are not yet used to the new rolling stock The experience so far has shown that the new trains make much less noise and thus they may be harder to notice Therefore the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority finds that it is justified to use in the new trains warning sounds that are somewhat louder than they used to be The warning signals are meant for making railways and their surrounding areas safe in order to prevent possible accidents As most of the railway accidents are still caused by the negligence of road users the Technical Surveillance Authority and NPO Operation Lifesaver Estonia continue their joint safety campaign Notice the train that was created to make road users aware of the changes brought about by the arrival of the new trains and to call on everybody to follow traffic regulations and safety rules while crossing railways entering and stepping out of trains as well as while moving around in railway area More information Technical Surveillance Authority Sõle 23A 10614 Tallinn Tel 667 2031 Categories News Share this Search for Recent Posts PRESS RELEASE Railway safety campaign

  • Railway safety campaign “Notice the Train”
    as well as for those walking in railway area Therefore people should pay even more attention in traffic in order to be safe The maximal train speed limits will not change with the arrival of new trains but road users should still consider that the new trains accelerate much faster which makes crossing railway tracks in front of a stopped train even more dangerous People should also consider that the new trains make much less noise which makes them harder to notice In addition trains will be operated more frequently and there will be more train crossings in stations Thus pedestrians should be very cautious while crossing railways and moving on passenger platforms The campaign reminds the general public that safety rules and regulations should be always followed in railway traffic Railways can be crossed only at designated locations Be cautious while crossing railways and use your eyes and ears to be sure that there are no trains locomotives wagons trolleys or other railway vehicles approaching A pedestrian must always let a railway vehicle to pass You should enter the area next to railway tracks only for crossing tracks or getting on or off a passenger train Railway tracks and the surrounding area are not suitable for walking sport playing or other pass time activities You should keep at least 5 metre distance from railway tracks while letting a railway vehicle to pass Be particularly cautious while crossing railways in front of a train stopped in station The yellow line on passenger platforms marks safe distance from stopping train Always apply baby carriage brakes while on a passenger platform More detailed information about the campaign here Additional information Anu Võlma Chief Specialist of Public Relations Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority 372 667 2031 372 50 11 585 Anu Volma tja ee
