South Caucasian Railways urges people to follow safety and traffic rules at railway level crossings and the railroad.
The company reminds drivers to cross level guarded crossings only with permission of the duty, and unprotected - only with the full confidence in the safety of their actions, to prevent themselves from rushing in front of the train, which can lead to serious consequences. Often, drivers, even in guarded crossings ignore the requirements of the duty and try to bypass the gate and cross the road before full-speed moving rolling stock.
SCR also calls citizens to be more attentive at the railway stations while crossing the rail. SCR requires to strictly follow safety regulations and urges citizens not to cross the railroad tracks illegally an an inconvenient place, do not use the road for cattle grazing and driving. Recently, these actions have become a serious threat to traffic safety.
For its part SCR has taken all necessary steps to ensure traffic safety: the program of re-equipping and maintenance of level crossings is on process, operations to identify shortcomings and breaks at railroad crossings are regularly carried out, technical studies are carried out with the duties, notes “Notice of Traffic Safety” are distributed to the drivers.
Safety at level crossings is of particular importance, taking into account the constant increase in train speeds and the need for technical modernization of railway crossings, increasing the level of technical and labor discipline.
SCR pays particular attention to awareness about the rules of conduct and safety, for this at all railway stations special reminders are placed for citizens and children. In addition, we co-operate with the municipal authorities, enterprises, schools located next to the railroad which explain to people, staff and students the need to meet the safety rules on the railway.
SCR again calls people not to risk life and limb\, not to cross the railroad tracks breaking the rules. Remember that the rail like the car can not stop at once: in the case of emergency braking stopping distance of the passenger electric train is not less than 800 meters.
