Minnesota Operation Lifesaver aims to reduce vehicle-rail crashes

As reliance on railroads and trains for transporting goods increases there comes a corresponding increase in railroad traffic that equates to an increased probability of accidents, derailments and crashes with vehicles crossing railroad crossings. Given the thousands of miles rails cars have to travel, it should not be surprising that train accidents happen.

Railroads companies hesitant to make emergency plans public

Minnesota residents should be interested to know that at least 300,000 people in the state have homes that are in close proximity to railroad tracks that are used to transport crude oil. With close being a relative term, in this instance it means within a half-mile radius. This means that the homes and railroad tracks are close enough to be potentially adversely and dangerously impacted if a disaster were to take place and a tanker train car carrying crude oil were to derail and explode.
