On May 7, 2013 OLE will join the ILCAD campaign. We shall install OLE mascots carrying our safety message at level crossings all around Estonia. On that day, the police will pay more attention on railway level crossings, to remind the drivers that they should follow all applicable traffic regulations while crossing railway lines.
Operation Lifesaver Estonia communicates information on ILCAD to the TV channels.

Campaigns in Estonia takes place all year around!
