June 6, 2013 was Rail Safety Day in Alabama and the Modal Programs Rail Section volunteered with Operation Lifesaver at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera. Over 1,000 people participated and received information and instructions about rail safety (and a train ride!).
Thousands of these postcards were sent to several “hot spots” (locations with high
incidents) around the State to inform and educate about Rail/Highway Safety.
Motorcycle Safety Awareness in May was a big success!
The message was spread throughout the Southeast as ALDOT participated in a Hands Across the Border events at the MS/AL state line in conjunction with other safety advocates. Safety-related materials were also distributed at "Thunder Beach".
Over 4,500 employees from state agencies, contractors, road builders, and local officials participated in a Statewide Safety Stand Down. During Work Zone Awareness Week, employers hosted a safety meeting prior to beginning their work assignment to address relevant safety issues.
