In VJ&o 2,206 persons were killed at sucji crossings and ,55d injured. As suggestions in the finding of remedies for the situation the railroads offer the following planfe: highways' should be re-routed, where practicable, to avoid crossing railroads; travelers' views of approaching trains should be improved where possible; warning signals should be obeyed by highway travelers; public authorities should discourage the creation of new crossings; due notice should be given of the approach of trains; reckless driving should be condemned; all efforts to prevent crossing accidents should be encouraged; and the separation of the highways from the railroads should proceed in . an orderly and consistent manner. Standard Oil's Record. ! The carelessness of the average driver, it is said, is astounding n view of the statistics. At a recent check at a crossing guarded by in automatic signal, 26 per cent jpf those approaching when the signal was displaying signs of the approach of a train passed on over the crossing in spite-of the warning sign. Futhermore, over 10,000 crossing gates, unmistakable signs of danger beyond, harriers !to death, with a high, degree of. visibility, were smashed last year. ; However, the campaigns being carried on by the railroads is bearing fruit, for while automobile registration increased 12.7 per cent in 1925, and automobile highway fatalities increased 10 per cent, railroad crossing fatalities increased only 2.6 per cent. That the driver actually can prevent ac cidents, and that it is really pos sible to avoid such railroad accidents, is proved by the record made by the Standard Oil Company of Indiana, the vehicles of which crossed tracks 31,000,000 times in 1925, an average of 85r 000 a day, without a single acci dent, the railroads point out.
