"Operation Clear Track" will be the largest single law enforcement railroad safety operation ever attempted throughout the U.S.

During "Operation Clear Track," ISP troopers will be stationed at targeted railroad grade crossing incident locations to hand out railroad safety cards to motorists and pedestrians and issue warnings and citations to violators. The goal of Rail Safety Week is to reduce pedestrian and driver injuries and fatalities around railroad tracks through increased public awareness.

WHAT: "Operation Clear Track" - Police enforcement/education event to be held in 48 states at railroad grade crossings that have a high number of vehicle and/or trespasser incidents.

"Operation Clear Track" is an effort by Idaho's Operation Lifesaver, Amtrak and rail safety partner organizations to raise awareness of the need for caution near train tracks during Rail Safety Week, which is being observed in the U.S. and Canada September 23-29, 2018.

Media reps should coordinate with the ISP contacts listed above if you'd like to come and observe ISP's role in this event.
