How to use level crossings safely as a pedestrian
As pedestrians we need to:
- Concentrate – it’s easy to get distracted, especially by phones, music and conversation.
- Stop, look and listen. Follow signs and instructions.
- Check both ways before crossing – if there is a train coming, don’t cross.
- Understand the warnings (lights, barriers, alarms). Download the document or view the interactive guide below.
- Cross quickly, keeping children close and dogs on a lead.
