by Charlie Zelle, Commissioner, Minnesota Department of Transportation June 13, 2014. June is Rail Crossing Safety Awareness Month. It serves to remind us that risky behavior near railroad tracks can be a matter of life and death. Already this year, there have been 25 highway-rail grade collisions in Minnesota. In February, drivers in Elk River went around lowered gates at two different crossings and their vehicles were hit by trains. Fortunately, only property was damaged.
