IRU and UIC working closer together
The International Road Union (IRU)'s commission for road safety has adopted the International Union of Railways (UIC)'s railway level crossing guidance for commercial vehicles to raise driver awareness of potential dangers at and around level crossings.The guidelines are intended to ultimately save lives by effectively promoting safe behaviour at and around level crossings.
In a press release, the IRU stated, «for true road transport professionals, every road accident is one too many.» The trade body added that it welcomes the opportunity to work together with the UIC in tackling the issue of level crossing safety. The IRU/UIC guidance will be available for road transport professionals and training institutes in November. (ben)
