Level crossing collision seminar

Philippe AZOULAY spoke with the HFW Agency about collisions at level crossings in the presence of the SNCF. He revisited certain statistics: 15,500 rail crossings, 16 million vehicles passing through each day and more than 100 collisions per year. An accident rate that is not in decline… Following an incident, a long and painstaking investigation begins. On the one hand, there is a complex legislative framework involving the Badinter law and European regulations, and on the other there is the “accidentology” procedure, where experts recreate the exact conditions of the accident. 99% of cases are settled within the framework of the protocol signed between insurers and the SNCF.
