New research reveals lack of knowledge about railway dangers leads to more people taking risks at level crossings in Anglia

Wednesday 16 May 2018

New research from Network Rail reveals a quarter1 of Anglia residents think crossing a motorway on foot is more dangerous than crossing the railway on foot, despite the fact that trains cannot swerve out of the way. This lack of awareness is causing more people to take risks, with only 33% identifying that crossing when barriers are down and no train is coming is a risk and only 21% recognising that crossing when the lights are flashing is a risk.
