NPC Resources -- FRA's Nationwide Survey of Train Whistle Bans (8373 words)
Unlike the Florida crossings, where there was a high order of similarity from one crossing to the next, especially with regard to the number of trains, the crossings in these case studies embody such a variety of situations that the results should be free from significant bias.
For this comparison, the "Study Group" of 2,122 crossings was purged of 900 crossings that either had a change in the status of its whistle ban or had a change to the type of motorist warning device installed during the five years of 1989 through 1993.
The 1,222 crossings with whistle bans were sorted in order of increasing risk according to their APF ratings, divided into ten groups of nearly equal size, and labeled A through J. Based on the APF ratings, Group "A" had the least risk and Group "J" had the highest risk.
To Order This Document - Specify Document No. RA200077 (1226 words)
Overall, crossings subject to whistle bans have a higher level of warning device than the general population of crossings, wherein, 17 percent have gates, 18 percent have flashing lights, and 51 percent have crossbucks.
Whistle bans at crossings in 65 cities had either been cancelled by public officials or were being ignored by the railroads in a conscious decision to not abide by ordinances that appeared to compromise safety.
Unlike the crossings in Florida, which were located along the same right of way with relatively uniform rail traffic, the crossings in this study reflect a very diverse population with respect to physical configurations, motorist warning devices, and highway and rail traffic mixes.
