ILCAD (International Level Crossing Awareness Day) campaigns 2010-2014

“Act safely at level crossings!”

Since 2009 the International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) campaign has been spearheaded by the International Union of Railways (UIC) with the support of the railway community around the world. A growing number of road sector organizations, the European Commission and the United Nations - Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE UNECE United Nations Economic Commission for Europe ) are also involved in raising awareness of the risks at level crossings in order to change road users’ and pedestrians’ behaviour to “act safely at level crossings”.

This campaign proceeds from an uncomfortable statistic: too many people die or are injured in accidents at level crossings. Even if according to European statistics level crossing accidents account for only 1% of road deaths they comprise 28% of all rail fatalities. Statistics show also that the majority of these are due to misuse by motorists and pedestrians but the popular misconception is that these incidents are a railway problem. Conferences on the issue show that the only really effective way to decrease the number of accidents, short of closing all level crossings, is Educating people, highlighting the risks and making them aware of the potential consequences if they do not follow the simple rules of the road. Finally when Education fails or is not sufficient the next step is to take Enforcement measures.   The 5th edition of ILCAD was held on 7 May 2013 and was one of the events hosted by UNECE in Geneva as part of the second UN Global Road Safety Week. It was commemorated in 45 countries. The key focus was on young people and distraction from mobile phones and iPods, visit: http://www.unece.org/trans/roadsafe...
