2021-2022 FRA Railroad Trespass Prevention Summits

Engaging Stakeholders and Communities Across the Nation

The FRA Railroad Trespass Prevention Summits goals were to raise awareness of the dangers and effects of trespassing, to seek out low-cost solutions to local trespassing issues, and to discuss practicable ideas for technological improvements for pedestrian safety at highway-rail grade crossings.

Each summit consisted of discussions focusing on railroad trespassing prevention, including the following:

  • Sharing leading industry best practices.

  • Explore new local strategies to reduce the number of right-of-way trespasser incidents and fatalities.
  • Discussions on the effect that trespassing has on their communities.
  • The root causes of trespassing.
  • Recommendations for future actions to reduce incidents.
  • Funding solutions for implementing railroad trespassing mitigation strategies.
