Evaluation of Automated Enforcement of Grade Crossing Signals

The objective of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of automated enforcement technologies in improving grade crossing safety. The research involves two major tasks: a review of laws and regulations in all jurisdictions across Canada relating to the use of photographically based systems for enforcement, including potential institutional barriers; and a pilot test to determine the effectiveness of the technology in improving motorist and pedestrian compliance.
