ILCAD 2022

The International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) is a worldwide initiative to improve awareness of level crossing safety. Since 2009 the campaign has been spearheaded by the International Union of Railways (UIC), the worldwide railway organisation with the support of the railway community around the world. About 50 countries usually take part in the ILCAD annual campaign.

Each year, a partner country hosts the launch event where we may share good practices and projects to improve safety and reduce the accident toll.

This conference attracts railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics, and many others from around the world who are working to raise awareness about the dangers surrounding level crossings.

In 2022 the international conference to launch the 14th ILCAD campaign was held on 9 June in Denver (Colorado) preceded by a conference to launch the first edition of the TRESPAD campaign on "Trespass and Suicide Prevention" on 8 June; it was followed by technical visit on 10 June.
The events were co-organised by International Union of Railways (UIC), Association of American Railroads (AAR), Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and Operation Lifesaver inc. (OLI), Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) and the Colorado Railroad Museum.
