The Federal Railroad Administration and Operation Lifesaver of California have produced an educational video for truck drivers designed to promote safety at highway-rail grade crossings. The five-minute video reviews the legal responsibilities of the drivers as they approach and travel over highway-rail grade crossings, and helps provide situational awareness by highlighting important aspects of railroad operations at crossings.

The video is available in both English and Spanish, along with closed-captioned versions of each, and is brief enough so it can be shown quickly to drivers before their shifts or in safety meetings. The video can be downloaded here and can be shared within trucking companies and trade groups.
