February 27, 2012 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has posted a safety video to its YouTube channel on www.youtube.com/michigandot. The video urges motorists to pay close attention when approaching a railroad crossing. The video also provides facts about state laws and safety tips about crossing safety.

MDOT partnered with Operation Lifesaver, a nationwide organization devoted to ending collisions, deaths and injuries at highway-rail grade crossings. More information about crossing safety is available on the Operation Lifesaver Web site at www.oli.org.
