After two very recent accidents involving local and interstate trains in Florida, and the fatalities that came about as a result, the Department of Transportation
was on high alert earlier this month, issuing not only a statement, but a state wide education initiative, intended to combat the risk of future accidents.
As part of its promise to ensure safety is the top priority across the state’s rail corridors, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Secretary Kevin J. Thibault, P.E. today issued an immediate directive calling for the implementation of unprecedented rail safety measures and the launch of a statewide education initiative. The directive has the explicit goal of preventing additional fatalities on or near rail crossings on state roads and state-owned land crossings.
