RAILROAD SAFETY FILM:
“Without Warning”

©The Angels on Track Foundation®


VHS - Approximately 24 minutes


In an effort to educate the general public on existing hazards at dangerous unprotected railroad crossings and to dispel the common belief that motorists are always at fault, The Angels on Track Foundation has produced Without Warning.

Based on circumstances that victims of preventable rail/highway collisions and motorists face each day when they are forced to cross over 96,000 public grade crossings in this country that are not equipped with protection devices, this film hopes to draw public awareness to the deplorable safety condition of our nations railroad crossings. Approximately 21% of public crossings have gates, while 61% are passive (unprotected). Private crossings, not regulated by states, often have no markings or protection devices.

By placing focus on the current condition of crossings, lack of protection devices, outdated safety equipment, and complacency on this issue, The Angels on Track Foundation hopes this film will be used as a tool to draw attention to the dangers that exist at all railroad grade crossings. Trustees of the Foundation hope that schools, driver's education instructors, public safety departments, or anyone interested in learning more about existing hazards at grade crossings, will call for a copy.
