Our network includes over 25,000 grade crossings. 推广十字路口的安全，是我们运作和文化的重要组成部分.
Trains cannot stop quickly. 一列100节车厢的货运列车以每小时55英里的速度行驶，一旦进入紧急刹车，需要超过1英里的距离才能停下来. 当车辆司机或行人在平交道口违反交通规则时, or trespass onto railroad right of way, they are putting themselves and the train crews in danger.
近年来, we've made significant investments on grade-crossing maintenance, improvements and safety programs. Our initiatives include community education and awareness, train crew education and testing, 穿越闭包, 新的安全技术, 植被控制, and track and signal inspection and maintenance.
