    the collisions that occurred took place during the first quarter of the year due to choosing driving speed not matching the weather conditions or due to negligence of motor vehicle drivers This shows that our railway infrastructure is already reasonably safe and the accidents happen mostly due to traffic regulation violations The measures applied during the recent years for making railways safer such as introduction of LED traffic lights closure of problematic level crossings improvement of level crossing visibility have had their positive influence on overall level crossing safety In the first half year of 2012 the number of pedestrians hit by railway rolling stock increased by one compared to the same period of 2011 The number of fatalities and persons injured remained the same The main reasons for such accidents are continuously negligence and carelessness as well as trespassing The improvements for making level and pedestrian crossing safer continue Most of the pedestrian crossings will be audited in course of passenger platform reconstruction and the perimeter of major stations will be fenced thus limiting the crossing of railways in undesignated areas All the automatic level crossing lights must be equipped with LED lights by the year 2018 and therefore several railway level crossings located on high density lines will get LED lights and level crossing gates already this year Tallinn Tapa and Tapa Tartu lines We also continue our efforts for increasing public awareness about railway safety issues in cooperation with international railway safety promoter Operation Lifesaver Estonia OLE This year s campaign Know Your Opponent called on people to notice trains as a larger vehicle and assess its driving speed correctly Additional information Anu Võlma Chief Specialist of Public Relations Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority Sõle 23A 10614 Tallinn 667 2031 50 11 585 Categories News Share this Search

  • PRESS RELEASE: ILCAD 2012
    drugs Accidents are also caused by violation Speeding is the highest risk factor of collision at level crossings as well as in other road areas According to EC figures 30 of fatal road accidents in the EU are caused by speeding This is why fixed cameras speed radars have been installed at level crossings in some countries U K France Zigzagging between two closed half barriers by road users pedestrians jumping over the barriers also represent a high accidents risk Level crossing accidents have long term and enormous human impact on the society loss of a beloved person or family lost contribution to home and work productivity quality of life post traumatic effects on the locomotive driver car or train passengers on the witnesses on the injured people high medical costs Society still regards level crossing accidents as a railway problem despite evidence of motorists being at fault the impact in the media being very negative The rail sector alone is not able to control the high risks issued by road users and pedestrians traversing level crossings without the support from other key players including the road and rail sectors police forces road users and those with responsibility for licensing those users as well as pedestrians and cyclists Other initiatives apart from classical engineering solutions could include innovations like alerts or locations of level crossings on satellite navigation systems U K France signals sent to cars at level crossings by approaching trains being tested in Australia But the core solution still remains human behaviour That s the reason why the International Level Crossing Awareness Day is so important to make level crossing users aware of the dangers they face when not respecting the traffic rules and make them aware of the serious risks not only for themselves but also for their accompanying persons the railway staff members and train passengers Did you know Trains can weigh 1500 tons the distance for a train to stop can be 10 times higher than for a car When a train runs at 90 km h it takes 800 metres to stop up to 1200 metres depending on the weight and speed of the train a car stops within 70 metres According to RFF 50 of car collisions between a train and a car lead to a fatality 5 only when it is a typical road accident According to the World Health Organisation traffic accidents cost between 1 to 2 in high income countries of the Gross National Product according to the country Since ILCAD partners have started to tackle the level crossing safety issue through better Engineering risk mitigation more Education and more Enforcement they have been experiencing great decreases in the number of collisions and fatalities some examples Operation Lifesaver inc U S A since 1972 84 fewer collisions Operation Lifesaver Canada since 1980 75 fewer collisions RFF France since 2000 50 fewer collisions REFER Portugal since 1999 84 fewer collisions On 7 June an international conference will take place from 16
