Awareness measures 2017

  • on 2.th of June Latvian Raylways launched a level crossing avareness campaign, that is mostly focused on youth (warning about risks of the use of smartphones when crossing the railways).
  • The campaign started with a teasing video where a teenager is hit by a train. The motto of the campaign is „Throw away your phone and live !”
  • Before we launched our campaign we went to some level crossings in Riga to see – what people do when they are crossing a railway. And it came out that many of them are using smart phones- talking, listening to music, chatting or surfing on the web. The survey data shows that almost everyone is aware that it is dangerous.
