    turned off or at least their volume turned down at the time of crossing railway lines as trains give sound signals while approaching level crossings These sound signals may not have proper effect if drivers thoughts are elsewhere and car radio too loud The same rule applies to pedestrians wearing headphones and mobile phone conversations however interesting they might be The Deputy Director General of the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority Anvar Salomets explained that the number of railway accidents had decreased in recent years Last year were registered 16 railway accidents which is almost twice less than in 2011 It is extremely positive that in 2011 and 2012 we had in Estonia no train motor vehicle collisions with fatal consequences The improved technical condition of the railway infrastructure to which the government and railway companies have contributed a lot has certainly played its role in achieving this result I would also like to hope that this was also due to motor vehicle drivers improved traffic behaviour and people paying more attention to threats while crossing railways or moving around in railway area The Estonian Police and Border Guard Board that organises during this week traffic monitoring at railway level crossings also supports the Railway Safety Week campaign Crossing railways has become a daily routine for many road users and people tend not to pay enough attention in such situations Unfortunately many tragic accidents happen due to such careless behaviour said Deputy Director of the Estonian Police and Boarder Guard Board Tarmo Miilits Throughout this week the police monitor at railway level crossings the behaviour of both motor vehicle drivers and pedestrians and draws their attention to potential dangers and violations During the Railway Safety Week campaign posters are being displayed in public space and additional railway safety presentations are organised
