  • ZSR ILCAD Banner :

This year ŽSR within the focus at pedestrians at level crossings decided to undertake a simulated collision of a human dummy and a train at selected level crossing. Through a short DVD spot the demonstration will be available to the public and the media with the aim to make public aware of extreme seriousness, the tragic dimension and dangerous situations that can happen at railway level crossing in a single moment of inattention, and also related aftermaths of such tragic accident in terms of the loss of life, severe injuries, enormous property damage. With this demonstration we would like to alert the road users to think twice when passing through a level crossing, to act cautiously and adhere to the provision of the Act on Road Traffic.
