Summary of the film:
Almost all collisions at level crossings are du to users’ behavior (road users, pedestrians and cyclists) because of a non-respect of the highway code, distraction, habit, complacency, ignorance of existing risks, stress of not reaching school, work or an appointment in due time. These behaviors may lead to level crossing users’ unsafe decisions simply causing their death or heavy injuries. They also may put other persons at danger in their own vehicle or on trains (railway staff and passengers). Pedestrians crossing tracks walking underneath or climbing above barriers to save minutes, or cyclists zigzaging between two semi barriers, wait sometimes for a fist train passing but don’t pay attention to a second train coming from the opposite direction and get hit. In order to better aware pedestrians and cyclists who become offenders or who are unconscious of the high risks they may take, UIC produced a new video of one minute and posters. These posters address pedestrians and cyclists in particular but also all other users distracted by new technologies (phones, headphones, GPS..) or simply stressed by modern life. Those persons do simply not respect the highway code and take huge risks by crossing tracks when the light is on, barriers are down announcing the arrival of a train … Slogan : Take your time, don’t risk your life!
- ILCAD 2014 video "Saving Lives at Level Crossings" (co-produced by UIC/UNECE/BAV) There are millions of near misses and more than 6000 deaths estimated on level crossings around the world every year. But because the numbers are relatively low compared to accidents on the roads, not enough priority is given by policy makers to improving safety. The International Union of Railways, road sector organisations, European Institutions and the UN are committed to raising awareness about the risks, improving technology and changing behaviour.
- ILCAD 2012 Video available in 5 versions on YOUTUBE, DAILYMOTION and VIMEO in English (with 4 children), English (1 child), French, Spanish and Serbian together with posters.
- In 2010 to support the ILCAD campaign, the European Commission (DG MOVE) totally financed a video clip aimed at the public, particularly the road users and pedestrians in any country in Europe and all over the world. It is available free of charge to all ILCAD partners (rights have been covered by the EC until 2015 for internet use worldwide and in public areas only in EU countries). This can be adapted by any partner in her/his own language by integrating the official motto in her/his own language (upon request).
- In 2011 thanks to Operation Lifesaver Estonia’s support a video montage has been made out of ILCAD partners’ CCTV films:
