The Be Rail Smart Campaign is a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) effort to increase rail crossing safety.

The Campaign was initially launched in 2018 as an effort to increase rail crossing safety awareness throughout all counties within District Four (Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River). This year we are relaunching the campaign during Rail Safety Week, which takes place September 19th-25th.

Campaign Goals

  • Reduce the number of incidents on or around the tracks.
  • Create campaign champions.
  • Establish campaign partners.

Campaign Initiatives

Throughout the month of September, the campaign promotes public education and awareness of rail safety through community outreach, agency partnerships and print and digital media advertising.

Get Involved

We encourage all members of the public, agencies and transportation partners to help spread the word.
