Can Google Help Reduce the Number of Railroad Crossing Accidents?

The Federal Railroad Administration is exploring the possibility of digital mapping companies aiding in reducing the number of railroad-vehicle collisions.

Causalities from train-vehicle crashes have increased in years past. While technology has created hazards by distracting drivers, in this instance, it may do the opposite.

Apple, TomTom, Mapquest, and Garmin may also participate. Details regarding how the notifications will alert drivers have yet to be released.

Remember to always program your GPS before you start driving, if you have to look at a map, pull over.
