In cooperation with Fenton High School and Metra, the Bensenville Police Department would like to remind people about the dangers of crossing railroad tracks other than at established crossings. In addition to the public awareness campaign, there will also be an enforcement campaign. One specific area of concern is students at Fenton High School crossing the tracks before and after school.
Operation Lifesaver is an active, continuing public education program designed to reduce the number of crashes, deaths and injuries at highway-rail intersections. It is sponsored cooperatively by federal, state and local government agencies, civic and business organizations, the nation's railroads and other groups interested in highway safety.
